Hi all I have just bought a white dial kit and realised that the needles will need painting. Does anyone know what is the best paint to use and what colour is the best?
Thanks all
Gaz

Thanks Serl. Does the paint need to be luminous? Also do the needles have to come out to fit the dial kit if so are they hard to remove? Sorry about all the questions

right. the needles do have to come off to fit yer dials. heres a good way to remove 'em......... take yer clocks out, and remove the bezel, (about 6 screws on the back and about 4 clips AFAIR, then with yer bezel off, (oo er missus) heat the needles with a hairdryer, then using two screwdrivers, GENTLY lever the needles off. that should do the trick.






*all members please note that if anybody manages to f**k their dash clocks up attemping this i am not responsible. it is entirely up to you if you choose to follow any advice i dispense and therefore your responsibilty if you make a balls of it.*

This is the paint I found on ebay for doing your needles, it's the only thing I could find that I thought would do the job properly. It's located in USA but they do ship worldwide.
