auto cluster blue gear and selector mod

so, its still a work in progress, the biggest hurdle i had to climb was finding the right display to get the 1,2,3,4 in blue. theres lots out there. for the tekkies out there, what you need is a blue 0.4 inch or 10.16mm seven segment common cathode display in a 10 dip format with the common pins being pins 1 and 6, not 3 and 8. if you can find such a thing, grab em. mouser electronics has them for 12 bucks a piece with a minimum of 120 pieces. made by rohm electronics. since i wasnt gonna spend 1400 on this i went with the same display but with the common pins 3 and 8. this required me to basically rewire the pcb for the display. wasnt fun but ive done worse. the display for the p,r,n,d,2,1 was less of a pain and im still working on the colour scheme. it involves removing the clear plastic pieces and removing all the colour from a lower piece with nail polish remover and then sandwiching a new filter between them. you will see from the pic im still working on the brightness and colour but the gear indicator is spot on with the rest of the cluster. btw this pic was taken at 7 tonight for ambient light reference.cheers
