Cluster info?

So while my accord is down I'm kinda just messing with some ideas I've always had. Currently changing the needles to blue, wanted to know if anyone sells aftermarket needles, or how to remove the orange film. I can't seem to separate the clear part of the needle from the black center piece, which looks to be required to remove all the orange.

Likely bonded either chemically or with industrial glue. I'd just recommend trying to find a translucent blue film that shrinks or something of that sort.

Or you could simply sand through the clear bit.

A plastic dye is a bit more permanent and would still be tinted by the orange, but could be an easyish solution.

Also there's a chance that the orange bit is a material meant to conduct light well, like fiber optic sights. There's a chance that without replacing that with something similar the needle will lose all its glow. You can check this by shining a light through it at a similar position to how whatever does it inside the dash does, and see if it glows.

Any idea on how to separate clear needle center from the needle housing?

Use films to manipulate the color.
