    Now, you just need to mass market a plug-and-play version to the rest of us that would like this cool upgrade.

    First of all, that looks great...awesome work!

    Question on printing, however. Would this be done on a similar type of material to the A/C decal? If so, wonder if we could make some replacement, partially transparent headlamp switch icon labels

    My VIN:    831

    Today, I decided to sloppily put together my own "label." I used 4 sheets of transparencies, three of them with colored "invisible" icons and one with greyed out "invisible" icons. I decided to do this after receiving a quote of $300-$400 from a professional.

    Here's the result.

    Here's a few backlit with an led flashlight.

    Here's the center icons backlit, and I know, bad picture quality...

    Notice the icons disappear when not lit.

    Please mind that these sheets were put together in 30 minutes and the printer was an inkjet. I'll probably use my laser printer to print in the future...

    Also, if anybody knows an individual with an industrial printer that can print on lexan, please let know.

    Anyways, I'd rather have idiots come up to my car and say it's "fast" because it has a 160 MPH speedo. That is one reason why I chose to use this specific speedometer... Otherwise, it's just for looks.
    If you're looking to please the idiots, just make it an 88MPH speedometer
