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

there is a lot of red light because

1) i changed the standard bulbs to red LEDs
2) i removed the strip of green plastic
3) i hacked off a strip of black plastic that kinda blocks the light from the LEDs.. it had a very narrow slit to let the light in. so i hacked away the piece of plastic to make a wider slit for more light

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

Im going to have a go at this!

Just want to get this right, if I go to Louie's gallery save the pics of the dials and then open them up in photoshop change the colour of them and then print them off they will fit my one mk2 original dials once sprayed on with spray on glue.

Is that right?

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

Will print to scale for if you download the larger files. MK2 base clocks only so far Ė if anyone has scans of other dials, please upload them .

Careful where you spray the glue BTW

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

White dials for your mk1 Unos. It has many more for Regatas, 128s etc but the reading is only in KM/H. You can find plenty more in their forum. If you have difficulties in understanding just tell me and I will find some more for you from the forum.

Just been thumbing through a few posts on here and i thought i would let you guys know that i made my own white dials a few years back for the MK1 uno turbo... As i am soon going to pick up my new UT im sure i will need to do the same again so when i do ill post up the design that you can all print off so you can make your own too...

Re: How To: Making Custom White Dials

Hi Lobster,

I had my MK1 dials out a bit back when trying to work out which ECU pin to get the boost guage working for Mark..

Took this at the same time https://www.fiatforum.com/gallery/sh...=32067&cat=949

Use the Filesize: of 1389.8kb one below pic if you want it to scale
