    So you've taken your clocks/speedo pod out, stripped it down, and sprayed the back of your gauges blue? Now the light behind them shows through very dimly correct?

    You can get transparent paint in art shops, or maybe some pree blued lamps, or those supper groovy dialslinked too.

    Their labled as EL but they look like LM(Luminus matirial) wow just googled EL, you can get it on a role 32" wide by 1200 feet , humm could I coat my car in it ?
