I don't do complete cluster any more. no time, and no running car to reset the needle once its install. working on building just complete LED Circuit board than can be install which is plug n play unit so no soldering required. it will include the led light to light up the needle so the the most deficult part of the mode is takend care off.
    up side it cost a lot less.
    down side you got to do the rest of mode yourself.

    wait hot spots is when you have some parts brighter then others right?
    yep. you may have notice the area closer to the bulb have thicker tint and fading out from there. when you remove that tint and still use same light source.
    then the area closer to the bulb will be brighter than the area farther away.
    that creating uneven brightness on your gauge face.

    is it posible to just use acetone on the back of the gauge and put a white wedge bulb in the gauge bulb socket?
    yes its possible. you will have hot spot because you remove the tint that suppose to prevent hot spot.

    Still very impressive as always sir, I think as well as others that you deserve some kind of CB7T award for this. Looks like a very tedious process.
