    speedo/dials

    hi guys hope someone can help me.

    I currently have the stainless steel dials from lmf with the ultra blue background, theses have gone into my original white dials but the needles are not bright enough. would it be possible for me to put these in some black dials? and if so will the needles be any brighter?

    thanks

    the only difference is the diffuser behind the dial cards. one is clear plastic (white i think) and one is sort of a rough finishe to spread the light and prevent hot spots (black).

    I might have to that back to front but that's the difference
    Coupe now being broken for parts
    You know the one

    Enquire within

    thanks for that dave do you think it would be any different if i changed this i have bought xenon white flat top leds from ken(oddjob) which has helped the light output around the numbers but really want the needles to be brighter.
