gauge needle question
 
Are the needles in our cars painted that orange color or are they orange all the way through?

It's an orange backing. It's not all the way threw, I've sanded mine down and made them clear.

Thanks alot man.Thats what I wanted to here :D .The reason I needed to know is I found a kit to make the needles glow bright blue.I'm doing the leds in my gauges and I don't really like the orange color of the needles.Heres a link to the kit.

i too found a kit heres link below...only issue is he states that the needle have to be clear for them to work. Can this be done knowing the needle in 4th body is orange?

sorry for being off topic but anyone have problems with removing the needles and them not working exactly right afterwards like some stick or rub? i put a new inlay in thinking my old one was coming loose from behind. speedo,tac needles will not sit on the pins for starters.. any help would be great.. thanks

What grit of sandpaper did you use to sand them down? Also when you get them to a clear. How would you go about making them red? Any ideas?

Just red touch up paint would probably do the job.
