Yah, my wife loves them... They're not stickers tho. I made a plate on my engraving machine. It turned out pretty cool...

I think your on to something here, how much would you charge if I sent you a set of 5 inch gauges to do the same thing to them???? I think they look OUTSTANDING!!!!

Not sure guys. I'd have to order the plastic, depends on how many I do. You guys think 35.00 a set is fair? (for 5 inch faces) 30.00 for the 3-7/8" It's really not hard to change them. Although I haven't looked at a set of 5 inch gauges...

How did you open gauges to redo face? Nice job!
The hardest part was getting the bezels off. It really isn't difficult, just takes a bit of time. You take a screw driver and pry the lip back all the way around the gauge. The more time you take the nicer it will go back on. The trip rest knob unscrews. The needles are friction fit so just gentley spin and pull them off. then just tack the screws out of the face...

Be sure to get LEDs that are 360* beam pattern otherwise you will have hot spots. I have some similar to these that work well.

They SUCK.. (JUST KIDDING!!!)

Awesome concept!!

Like everyone else here, I'm eyeballing them and thinking of how they'd look on my sled.. You can probably get yourself a little side work by installing them, and turning the odo's back to 0000.0 for everyone.

Below are pics of the LEDs I'm using. A better camera would show the true colors better and both colors look better to the eye than the pics show. The blurry pics are closer to what the colors look like although the actual colors are a little deeper. Clearer pics are using a different setting but show the colors lighter than what they actually are. I reversed the bulbs to show what each color looks like in both gauges. To get the best coverage, you need to turn the bulbs to where you like it best. The bulbs are polarity sensitive. (only work 1 way)

BTW: I may be interested in having you do a pair of 5" gauges.
