Sweeping gauges

How can you get this affect out of a Ford on start up? even my sled does it when you fire it up.

Also I think white guages would look not bad.

I'm sure if you had the smarts to rewrite the programming in the GEM you could get it to sweep. Its not a simple thing to do. That's why I said just get aftermarket gauges and mount them in a panel at the stock location.



Or buy a car that does it like a Scion TC.

To get guagues like that I guess you'd just put White LED's in sand but dont repaint your guages right?

Or just touch up where you want a bit of colour like the numbers

i believe it would look better if you painted the area you sanded down with white paint. I think if you left it paint-less, it would have an annoying glare.
