nice work mate is it easy to do . how long does it take
The pain in the ass bit was removing the needles to remove the clock faces so I could remove the green backing, Removing the backing was easy, I just used some wet and dry. I recon I took about an hour to do.

The only bit thats bothering me is there are 3 patches that are dimmer than the rest, Around the 120mph and the 40mph, I dont really see why though

I can answer that :L

The internals of the lights have bits of plastic that are used to reflect light from hte bulbs to light up hte needles. These are what is in the way when you use LEDs like this :L

Ah right, I might fit a few extra LED's inside then and see if that helps
