Re: [DML] "1980's Delorean Speedo Cable Fix"


Why don't you use something that already exists and save yourself all the 
trouble of reinventing a wheel?
There are some great aftermarket gauges out there. Some with "welcome 
ceremony", some with additional features, multiple gauges in one. I would 
look into that. Use the inner workings of a speedometer with odometer and 
all the circuitry and just make it fit into the DeLorean size gauge. They 
are backlit so you could easily use a backlit face that looks stock. Some 
time ago I came across one with RGB backlight. Use something like that and 
you'll be able to set any backlight color you like. Oh, and some gauges use 
a link to communicate with other gauges you might have so they all have the 
same color and brightness.
This should make it a lot easier but will surely take out the fun of 
designing everything yourself.

Haven't started the speedometer yet, that will be the hardest one to do.
