I just put my gauges back together and from what i know about gauges and lighting the only way that you could get the needles to be different from the dial is to retrofit the housing wiht flat LED's to light the dial.

then construct a light block (a light proof cylinder to go from the dial plate to the back of the internal housing) this will allow you to plant different colored LED's inside of the light block right below the light output for the needle.

you would have to get about 4 flat LED's in the 8,000 mcd itensity range per needle plus you would have to wire in a power source.

all in all it ='s a big pain in the ass.

i am not sure how he says there is a kit for 6th gen accords on that website.

like silver said, the needles do not have dedicated light sources

Those look pretty ****ing sick... a little too bright in the first pic, tho.
My only concern is price + those needles are damn sensitive... swappin them out might be a touchy job...
