Reverse gauges give that nifty space-age look to your dashboard that will have you constantly looking at your speedometer not because you're going too fast, but just because it's so darn cool. Unlike traditional gauges where the needle and hash marks are visible in and of themselves, reverse gauges use negative cutouts with backlighting, so the light shines through to tell your RPMs, etc. This gives the interior of your car an ethereal glow that makes driving at night a pleasure.

Details matter when customizing your car, and the interior is a place that often gets neglected for upgrade. It's natural to want to wow people outside your car with flashy spoilers and spinners, but remember that inside is where you spend most of your time. You deserve to have something attractive and pleasing for your eyes to view, as well.

Engaging Reverse Gauges

A nice neon blue or cool green make great mellow light colors with which to give your dash a futuristic glow. If you want something bolder, choose a warm orange to light up your interior. Whichever color of light you choose, the reverse design of these gauges makes reading your instruments a joy.

Browse the Web to find bargains in dashboard accessories. Performance auto parts stores offer tempting deals, but make sure you know what you're getting before you buy. Also, consider installation concerns before making any purchases, as reverse gauges sitting in a box on your apartment floor don't do anyone any good.
