do what I did, buy the paint and just spray it with a gun. If you are going with blue LED's you will need different needles because you cant see them with the red ones.

also, if you want it to look reallllly shiney you need to spray it with some clear.

JP- I got a set of clear needles from an older Explorer to use when I go the LED route... Just taking it a step at a time... Leaving the country tomorrow so won't be until april but by then i should have everything to LED it and repaint with sonic blue... going to work on my center console at the same time....
