To anyone who has put white face gauges in.

Have you painted the whole needle or just sanded the bottom paint off and painted the bottom like the OEM ones.

If you painted the whole thing how does it look at night and do you have pics.

I got the fluorescent red modle paint to color them with.

Dont paint the whole needle, they will disappear at night! I did it for awhile and could not see the needles at all in the dark. I ended up sanding all the paint off, re polishing the needles and painting the backs red with a q-tip. turned out nice..

Reading this again, I think I see what hes trying to do. He has a white gauge, if the needle is blacked out it would still show... I think

Don't sand it, use acetone (fingernail polish remover and a white cloth. paint will come off, and not damage the surface.

Mask off the sides with good paint making tape, the regular stuff will seep paint on the sides. Try to get an even, but not too heavy, coat on the back only.
