Edit: Doh! I put this in the wrong forum. Can a mod move it for me?
I finally finished changing the color of my gauge faces -- I've been looking for something that worked well enough for forever until I finally figured it out today. Instead of using bulb covers (which I tried and wasn't happy with) or LEDs (which I'd also tried and wasn't at all happy with) I ended up getting red cellophane from a hobby shop. It turned out it was actually shrink wrap, so I shrunk it and then put it on the back side of the gauge faces, far enough from the lights that it shouldn't melt.
But, there's a problem.
Through all the playing with the gauges, my speedo has been sticking. Sometimes worse than others. I've taken the gauges out about 8 times now, and now it's unacceptable. The speedo isn't working at all. It just sits there at 0. If I moved it by hand and let go, it'll quickly return to 0, but when driving around it just sits there. I've moved it in and out, wiggled it around, trying to break it free of whatever is making it stick without any luck. Anyone have any idea what I need to do to fix it? If I can't do it, would a speedo shop be able to? TIA!
It looks better in person.
