I just used the paint bucket set to white. I put up a white set as well as the blue. The blue was the original set I got ahold of.

I'm gonna say if you can't figure out how to use photoshop enough to use the paintbucket tool you may want to abandon your project, this psd needs alot of cleaning up (for me at least) and things like paper medium & print quality are going to be a factor for me. If you don't know what you are doing they are gonna come out crappy and you don't want that!

In other news, dropped my tank and rewired my fuel gauge, works great now! Going to be doing some crazy black with red detail gauges, I'll post pics when I'm done.

I just installed blue leds in my dash Saturday. As, suggested in one of the two write-ups, used the 5 led "bulb" vs the 6. Looking at them in the garage with the doors closed I thought "Uh oh, not bright enough". But actually driving around at night they are the perfect briteness. I even did the snazzy blue/red combo on the tach (blue slowly bleeding into red for safe to gonna-blow-the-engine). The only change I intend to make is using a 6 led for the blue/left side on the tach and a 6 white led on the heater control.
