Guage Needles

Does anyone know where I can get some guage needles. I am getting ready to take my cluster off and install a reverse indiglo guage face and swap the bulbs out for some blue LEDs. However I do not want to not be able to see the needles at night time. So I was thinking to get some white needles or silver. Anyone know where I can get them? Or have any ideas on what to do to get my orange ones to show up ? paint?

if you want to see ur needles at night get some super bright 194/168 replace them from the stocked ones, theyre 3 of them in the center of the cluster. Why are you putting blue led's in if ur gonna put the reverse gauges over ur stocked ones?

After you put the gauges on, just take out all the bulbs, and your needles will not light up any more, so you will not be able to see them at night.

I do not know why you don't want to see them, but that is the easiest way.

Sorry that was an awkward sentence. I meant I want to be able to see them at night. If you read it again you'll see that it was just a confusing sentence.

If I replace the bulbs with super bright 194/168 bulbs and use the reverse Indiglo guage will they light up blue?

You are right, just a confusing sentence.

You won't be able to light up your needles blue. You can get them to light up red with bulb covers, or you can leave the regular bulbs in, and they will still light up orange.

I do not know about neon green, but you gan try green bulb covers, but it will mix the green with the orange on the needles. Don't know how it will look.
