Got bored this afternoon, figured I'd see if I couldn't toss together some white gauge covers. This is a really basic design, just to see if I could do it... But I like it. I'll try to take some lit pictures once it gets dark. Opinions?
Naw.. It's some higher quality (read: expensive) photo paper. It's good stuff. Regardless of that, it'll probably still yellow and peel in a couple days time. Until then, though! If it does, I've some vinyl I was thinking about using. I've used the stuff for a bumper sticker and it's lasted me little over a year now, so that should do the trick if the photo paper fails me. And if both kinds are crap, I'll just put stock back on.
My only suggestion is to paint the needles a contrasting color, so that you can see them against the white background. The needles are actually clear and painted white on the back side. You have to carefully scrape the paint off the back side and apply several coats of orange (or what ever color you desire).
