Well you can't really tell in the pic but in person they are more pink. The next time i take off the gauges i'm going to paid them red. I didn't want to mess up the needles as i have it down perfect right now. But if Mr. Dewa would hurry up with those Version Japan i will change them out.
Here are mine at night with the needles painted red. For me, the tips are dimmer, but not like this pic shows (where it looks invisible). I didn't have the most precise paint brush, but you'd want to paint ONLY the bottom of the needles, leaving no paint on the sides or top as that effects lighting.
Nice gauges phinz, looks kinda like my old ones, but the 6'oclock positiion is tits man, i love it. Maybe consider slapping on a nice momo steering wheel later and dumping that airbag? Then you could see those sexy gauges much easier. ;p
