Another step of the way, and another snag hit. Rather regret thinking I could do this mod. I installed my LED needle rings and a white EL panel and discovered that one ring was significantly dimmer than the other. Reconnected, tried different grounds, then after talking with Riceburner decided that one might have been not up to par. Second set of rings later and now both are nice and bright. Only problem is now the white EL panel isn't working properly. At first I thought it wasn't coming on at all, but now I can see that it's just extremely dim. Tried the stock EL panel, same result, very dim to the point where it's barely perceptible. All other functions of the gauge cluster seem to work correctly. The solder connections seem pretty clean and I was careful to wear gloves at all times, so I would be really surprised if I shorted something. Anyone have any thoughts as to what might be causing this?
