New LED Dash

So went to a Buddies today to get my JB4 Installed and he told me he could do my dash to white LED's and it came out pretty awesome. What do you guys think? Also if anyone is in his area (San Diego/Vista) and wants this let me know and ill tell him to contact you, But I LOVEEEE the way it came out. Also have a picture of our cars hanging out hehe, I thought it looked pretty cool. Enjoy.

Yeah red needles definitely make this. So hard to find though.

You can also replace the silver surrounds with M3 surrounds for ~$20 from eBay. Look really nice, but a bit difficult to install.

You can use a red sharpie for the needles. It looks really clean if you do it right. Ill Do it and post some pics later.

Sharpie doesn't look very good. I was thinking the best way is to have a container of red paint and to just dip the entire needle in it and let it dry.
