Update on AUII XR dash illumination
After mucking around with the blue condoms with no success with the needles, the minister of finance came up with an idea to place dark blue cellophane behind anything I wanted to come out blue.
It works and it looks bloody fantastic. Ive even been able to leave the Tickford logo white
What you do is:
remove the instrumentation from the dash.
Take off the shroud, carefully the lugs arent strong
remove the needles.
Carefully pull the face from the plastic diffuser, its stuck on with a gel type glue.
Turn the face upside down and place the cellophane (whatever colour you want) over the bits you want to shine as blue, eg, speed indications etc. cut out the bits you want to leave original, eg, red bits, Tickford logo.
Place face back on diffuser, replace needles, tacho and speedo need some setting up, replace shroud and put back in car, switch lights on. WOW.
Any questions please ask.
I will place a photo when I get one done.
