ordered some plasma dials and wasnt too keen on the fact my black needles dont show up too well in the dark. So constant wondering how to resolve this problem has led to me the ffollowing which i cant say will work. only someone in the know will be able to prove if it works (and if it does anychance some one feel like sending me a set of white needles that will illuminate?? )
Right so here it goes
white needles that illuminate at night are great for driving at night on plasma dial.
black needles are good for day time
and only some red needles illuminate (as my next door neighbor pointed out on his 04 astra g, black back ground, red needles, they illuminate)
So if white needles from earlier models definately illuminate. Why not spray them lightly with the red tinting spray people use on their rear lights to get the "lexmaul" look. if done properly the needle should appear red in the day, easy to see on the white dial, and illuminated red at night (easy to see at night.
Im very sorry if im very very wrong but i said id put the idea out there as ive noticed around the forum there are some people whom are v concerned with the fact the needle is not easy to see. let me know anyguys
