I think it looks good, I would have probably done it less gloss but it looks good nonetheless.

By itself, that's a little much for me, but I think the LEDs will make it work.

I don't think it looks aweful, but I don't think it looks great either. As far as quality, it looks like you did a good job, but I like the simple interiors so I am not real crazy about it.

I think it looks great, but I don't dig the needles too much, I'm with mike ^ I like simple interiors too. I would of probably just left the needles black.

Looks good.. but you know that light isn't going to shine through painted needles. Here's a pic of mine for reference.

Looks good, but I'm on the needle bandwagon as well.

I like how those gauges are from the factory, especially the ones with the silver surrounds. If you didnt have those, that's the color your should've painted them
