I wish I could take a picture of my gauge cluster at night :-( My car (which I should have named Gremlin) is still in the shop. It seems like everyone is always on vacation at this place?

Is the cluster background light actually purple, of is that a lighting effect you manipulated on your device?

Its actually purple. I soldered in LED bulbs. The gas gauge is pure orange now tho bcuz the UV i had in there blew. I figured it wouldnt last w/o a resistor since it was rated for max 12.2V. The other ones should be fine tho

Last pass before painting

3-4 light-mid coats in Sunburst Copper.

Wait, that's the wrong color.
Yes I am aware, but due to not having alot left of my Sunburst Orange II, I'm using a similar enough color and blending the topcoat to match

Pre-Wet Sand Blending, looks pretty close in color to me. Hard to see the spray irregularities in the photo but theyre there

Just 1 more light gloss, but she's pretty much done. The gloss helps hide some of the unbalanced areas

Remember my pretty colorful cluster? Well here's a revamp, since almost all the purples blew.

Remember kids, don't solder in crap to save money. You'll be stuck resoldering it when it fails

And double check for shorts, 99% you wont get lucky enough for the traces to stay intact. And you really dont want to fix them

Here's lowest and highest brightness

After much aggravation, mysterious paint nicks and uncooperative bolts, the wing is mounted. 'New' Emblem is mounted too. Just waiting for the goop to dry

After running around with her a bit, I can definitely feel the difference between this, no wing, and the low rise. Its not much, kinda feels like the difference between an empty tank n a full tank of gas, but it's noticeable enough
