If you are restoring a vintage or classic car instrument cluster with non-illuminated gauge needles, this is a must have item. Our fluorescent paint is designed for the restoration of gauge needles found in most vintage (i.e. 1980s and earlier) cars such as those found in Ford, Lincoln, Mercury Chevy Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Buick, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and many more. This special paint has a high fluorescent solids content that will meet or exceed the original fluorescent coating. This is a true fluorescent paint that is specially designed to “glow” under the lights of your dash. Using a non-fluorescent paint will result in your gauge needles appearing dark or black at night and make your gauges difficult to read. Using a proper fluorescent paint is the only way to properly restore your gauge indicator needles.
Many older gauge needles fade from damaging environmental factors including exposure to direct sunlight. Even if your paint still has good color, the fluorescent pigments that make it glow have faded away over the years. Our fluorescent paints will allow you to properly restore your gauge needles to their original factory appearance or a custom appearance that will glow at night just like they did when they were new. Below you will see actual photos of a speedometer that had a faded, “washed out” gauge needle. The photo on the right is the same speedo after being restored with our fluorescent paint. All of our fluorescent paints produce the same high quality results when applied. Notice how the crisp color changes the appearance of the gauge. Even moderately faded needles can make a gauge cluster look tired and worn. Adding a custom color is a great way to wake up your dash while setting it apart from all of the others.
True fluorescent paint with the correct amount of fluorescent pigment can be very hard to find and expensive to buy. We have this specially packaged for our company in economical size packages so you don’t have to pay for paint that you may never use. Our vial packaging contains more than enough paint to restore all the gauges in 4 or more vehicles. For those who want more paint at a great price, we also offer our shatter-resistant plastic jars that offer twice the paint for only slightly more money. Both containers feature an airtight seal that will prevent your paint from drying out when not in use and both contain two stainless steel mixing balls that easily mix the paint in just a few shakes of your hand. Our small vial packaging contains 2.25ml of paint, while our plastic jar contains more than twice as much at 5ml. Note: Plastic Jars are only available on our website (not available here on eBay.)
Even if your needles still appear the correct color, the fluorescent pigment in the factory paint has faded away over the years. Fluorescent pigment will fade over time and even in the best of conditions and will deteriorate in about 10-15 years. Repainting your needles will make them "glow" under gauge lights at night. This is a must have item for any classic car gauge cluster restoration.
