    blacked out instrument cluster

    I remember seeing this on a few cars. The gauges dissapper when the car is off. Adding a nice stealth effect. I plan on doing this. I am going to take some tint and tint the existing gauge cover. Since tint allows light to travel out, but not in. It should work well. For the gauges, I will us some nice gauge overlays. Most are pretty bright and wire them to always be on when the car is on. And all the other lights should shine though just fine. What do you fellas think? See any problems with this.

    I suppose it'll work. I have to admit i'm one whose gauges dissapear because they're lit during the day and dim at night.

    That DIGItonium is some amazing work. What did you do to hide the numbers?
