Piilar pod, Autometer, Blue LEDs

Picked up a blue pillar pod off zabeard. Sanded and painted it silver. I didn't see a gray a close enough to the stock color.

Installed some blue leds into the gauges. Which seemed damn impossible to get a good picture of.

There is a "hines adapter" in the upper radiator hose with the sender in it.

D says he has a box of them.

If the needle is close to a the large numbers its very easy to read. When its in between you need to figure out the scale. As they are not linear marks.

They are adequate. I would like them to be brighter but they may become a distraction. As of right now they are not.
