I have had this idea in my head for the last few weeks. The thing is i really like the optitron speedo's that the JZX100 Toyota's have

I was thinking of trying to mod a Nismo 320km to look like that. Idea was to change the normal bulbs to the strongest LED's available and to tint the clear plastic of the speedo to about 45%. Sounds easy but i am very bad at DIY stuff!



*Jzx100 trd optitron

So any feedback is welcome, and i am kind of surprised nobody has done this jet!

Good luck - I have tried this already whilst playing with ideas... It could well be I didn't use strong enough lighting, but the biggest issue was seeing the dials. Ideally these would be changed to clear or white over red.

Keep is posted though - love it when people abuse/adapt OEM :)

I once played with making a car pc with an "invisible" screen. I found some one way tint from 3M. worked really well with a standard LCD so bright LEDs shouldn't be an issue but was a bit glossy and sunlight was a problem.
