thats just the picture there arent really any hot spots. but basically i got all the led'* working and the last one i need is a little bulb above the DIC but those led'* needed to be sanded down alittle in order to distribute light alittle better... if i could find away to distribute the light even better that would be great

Looks great! I prefer the red, myself, but with the blue on the HU and all, it all really meshes well.

On a side note, how well do you like the 194 LEDs? And which ones did you get? I'm thinking about LEDs for my clear corners, but with the prices, I don't want to experiment too much...

if you have another gauge pannel to mess with then I would suggest taking it appart, and using medium to fine sandpaper to "rough" up the face of that clear acrilic. The scratches will glow, causing better light distro. just an idea. I wouldn't try it on your own incase you dont like it.

Looks good

How is it on the eyes though? Seems like you would be getting some bad headaches at night.
