your post was a reply to the "hope you didn't pop out the needles" post, and therefore i thought that since you quoted it you were talking specifically about what it was talking about. i guess i was wrong.

if you were just giving an example of a reason why people pop out the needles, then that's fine but you never really explicitly said that and i found it rather confusing.

Default Stage Gels

Quick question for anybody that used/using the stage gels to light their cluster: What are you using to get the gels to stay in place(if anything)? Optical Adhesive?

a quick reply would be great beign that i have my cluster sitting in front of me right now

I just put a dab of superglue (gel type) in one or two places where it wouldn't get in the way. (I say this because the glue kind of melts the gel into the gauge face...)

Not to mention the white residue from the gassing of superglue.

Can't say I've had any of that It's not a perfect solution but I wasn't going for anything permanent. I also cut the gels (with the exception of fuel/temp gauges) as one piece so they're essentially wrapped around the assembly and that's what is keeping it mostly in place.

You don't need any sort of adhesive I don't know why people keep saying that. Just place your cut-outs where you want them and secure the corners with some scotch tape. I have had this solution for about 4 months now and works perfectly. They are pressed pretty tightly against the glass once you pop those rings back in around the needles.

PT435...That looks sick! Can you post pics of the process you used with the LED's. I noticed the color is uniform, not bright and dim in different spots, how did you do this?

One thing...If you changed the color of the odometers it would really finish that off! Check out this tutorial:
