Hi Ryan,

In the middle of the sockets there is a small locking clip press this in, and the sockets should slide out (if I recall) .

Re: making white dials - the guide....

Some info for you all I have noted just for informations sake that if you set up your scanner to scan the image inverse it actualy scans it white anyway no messing about in photoshop with layers, all you have to do is add your personal touches print it off and the jobs a good un.

This is the picture of a speedo from the mk1 scanned in in inverse no moding in photoshop yet

Re: making white dials - the guide....

thanks, sorry the pics are gone, what colour did you do them in?

as for the sensor, if its the gauge you mean then all i can think of is go for a drive or leave the engine running to see if it moves the needle

i know mine has stopped working for some reason lol

Re: making white dials - the guide....
