That's really sharp. Where did you find, or how did you make gauges that look like that ?
And....do they still light up adequately for night driving ?

The speedometer face may need to be in Miles Per Hour, rather than in Km.

I use Kenwood KFC-E1065 speakers. I try to find Polk speakers in Europe but i can't find them.Shipping to Finnland is maybe 40 $.Sound is better in these speakes(ws original) but i think speakes baffles is the thing.

I agree, when I finally get around to doing mine, I will put some foam baffles in there behind them.
