No one sells the replacement needle..

Color changing needle is custom installed on top of the circuit board..
They are available as installation service only...
I'm not sure if I'm going to make a DIY kit for the color chaning needle or not..
But as of now.. no plan...

ok well ive been reading about all of this trying to learn without asking annoying questions but im confused about this... in this picture they point out two resistors. but it looks like there are more than just the two they circle(square). im just wondering, since they only point out those two, are they the only two that need to be replaced? or are all the little things that look like them resistors that need to be replaced also? and this goes for all of the pictures like this(where they point out 2 but there appear to be many more). thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

There is total of 6 resistor you can change... that is IF you want the LED light up little brighter.... not required... it's just personal preference...

There is two resistor for Gas/Temp side, two for Speedo side and two for Tach side... total of 6 resistor..

Also if you are doing red LED conversion, do not do resistor swap....!!
That's all, don't have to think too hard for them...
Diagram shows exactly which resistor to swap out...

Default just finished

I just got my guage conversion kit today (blue) and i just installed it myself. installing the LED's takes only about an hour and a half, depending on your experience with soldering things... but getting the needles back in the correct position takes like.... THREE ____ING HOURS> anyway, i just finished, and it look effin tight. im going to order the HVAC conversion kit in a few minutes, and get that hooked up too.


im going to post some pictures on yoursciontc.com. i'll get back with a link.

Calibration the needle is little tricky, but if you know the trick, it's easy to do..
I do them in like a minute....
Thanks..
