    CUSTOM DIAL KITS

    Just thought Id list this one in the UK if any one is interested.

    www.skewer.co.uk

    Tried e-mailing him but no response. Does any one know of him??

    Im after some white and black CF effect for my Novitec Ross clone.

    If I make my own, what would be the best material to use to print on?? I can take off the original, scan in and Photoshop to alter.
    Im not too bothered about the light comming through as I could light up from the front with a few LED hidden in the cluster cowl.

    I purchased aset of custom gauges from here, they were fantastic to work with, and the gauges are high quality stepper motor driven, they also do cluster graphics

    POSTAGE WOULD NOT BE MUCH IMO. If you have a scan or CAD just e-mail him.

    yes, i had them made to "upgrade" the ones in my car , long story , but what started as a lets just add a custom console for nav and dvd grew into a complete re-trim /color change.
    here's a picture of the re-trimmed door card i did

    You could try regular colour laser paper, then Matt laminate. I did this, and the dials looked great by day light, but the illumination is the tricky bit - backlighting just doesnt happen without a proper cut mask. As you've said LED's from the front could work, but without decent diffusing you get a 'stage light' effect because of the narrow beam spread of led's at close distances. Maybe make that effect a feature with a ring of them round the dial !
