    Why dont you just get a normal digital voltmeter and use its guts. Mount the screen on the dash somewhere. Here in Australia u can pick one up for as low as AU$12 (US$6)... Doesnt get cheaper then that!

    I personaly want to show that info on the computers LCD screen itself along with other data.

    Cool

    Any auto parts store will have add on volt guages somewhere. Most of them are backlit.

    Well you could say that... im from that part of the world originally

    Yeah back light can be a problem.
    If u could find a voltmeter using LEDs insted of LCDs then that would be a way to go.
