I modded my needles when i did the LED swap out (if that's what you meant). I have two clusters so i have the needles in white or red and i like the look of them both. White light with white needles is very clean, but the red needles look a bit sportier.

Little offtopic

manzrik gave me idea to fit in voltmeter.

I found on web very easy voltmeter with PIC, programmed PIC, and placed it with some components on test field Which was installed inside instrument cluster

Display intensity is normally regulated via knob, and during the day it shines as much as the normal display

do Ypu want to see more pics?

PS: real voltage is 13,9V, but i forgott to calibrati it heh

bad is, that these small LCDs are not being build in negative version, only in reflecting version or with green/yellow backlight. ****
