Ordered some blue Leds for the background and some green Leds for the needles. Going to replace the resistors for the blue Leds to make brighter. I have done alot of soldering in the past on circuits boards and larger switches and lights so I shouldn't have a problem. So far everything part wise has cost me around 30 bucks. If anyone else has done this on there own and have any pointers to give please speak.
Got everything taken apart now waiting on leds. wow the leds are small.
