    Ok.. So i was reading on the NASIOC forum and found out that well.. basically i'm screwed.. the color hue for blue does not allow the red needles to light.. sooo.. i found this Import Intelligence - IntelliGlow Needle Kits

    Which i may just go ahead and do.. lol its 70 bucks but hell looks worth it..

    I'm Still in question as to how i can make my gauges brighter though.. so any ideas on that please answer asap.

    Want a much more glowing blue look.

    The only way to really make the cluster brighter is to add lights in addition to what is already there. Adding leds is the common way but then you would need to scrape the green off and add another sheet to get the desired color.
