Well what I wanted to do was change that black thing which sits infront of the dials to say chrome or soemthing. I guess I could take it out a spray it but that ma look dodgey. The dials themselves I wanted to change to red and change the needles to white and the lights (LED's) behind to blue like the BA XR's.

200bucks though is a bit steep.

Gee that looks allright. I wonder how red or white would look. I like those blue lights from the BA onto EF/EL. I just had a look at that on fordmods.com

I there was a guy on ebay selling custom facias for $90. You could pic the colour of the facia and also the colour the dials light up at night and anything else you want on them like logo's etc. I wouldnt mind on of them!

I think this is one of them, love the red on white,

I am not sure on that mate coz i never had anything to do with him or anyone else who makes them. But who ever made the facia i attached above is by far the best looking that I have seen so far. I would get the same for my car if i knew how makes them. There are spoiler shops in WA who sell the coloured facias, they have heaps of coloures but they are around the $300 mark.
