    Dials

    does anyone know if its possible to change the design of the dials????
    how easy is it to do is it just a case of prising the speedo needles off with two teaspoons?
    any help appreciated!
    heres an example of what i mean

    To be honest with you I think the dials in the gallery look quite tacky, looks like something that was just printed out on paper at home kinda job. Ive only ever done dials in 2 of my old cars, luminescent ones in my Escort Gti and stainless steel ones in my ZR, both looked 100 times better than these.
