    again thanku all
    @SER..these needles are from a lexus meter which was lying by me spare.but u only need to change needles if the original ones dont give off much light..the leds are placed behind the needles just beside the rpm/speedo pin...a little modification has to be made for the led to be placed without hinderence...
    @loser...i wish i could do tht....but currently im quite busy with uni so cant take out much time...but as soon as i get free i might put up my services for sale lol

    @farooqi
    bro the driver circuit is not so complex...i used 7805 IC's to step down voltage then placed resisters for further stepping down...resisters can be used directly to step down from 12V to 3V but then high wattage resisters are needed which are costly,big and heat up as well..

    Oh yeah I wanna do this but I am some one who likes original look so if its not looking little original I will not like it at all :p. I wish i some how can install lexus meter in my car i like that plus i like it because of Electronic speedo meter which is very stable.

    88 also Comes with Original Digital meter the 6 Dial one but expensive bahot hai around 20k.
    Speed costs money, how fast can you afford to go.

    Thanks yall!
    @vaqas....personal preference man!!nd yea electronic meters are very stable but cost money...this didnt cost me much at all...nd i like doing work myself...getting somthing done is jst not my thang!
    @ajjubravo...thts another way to do it...bascially a driver circuit adds safety if any led becomes faulty nd gets shorted or smthing it can blow out a lot of other leds in the array...ths way only the ic burns and protects the led arrays..
    @2c...i wish i could post a video but i didnt make one...did this in a hurry...surely next time ill doa more step by step tutorial..
