Looks like that line was due to be replaced anyway. You should replace all of them.

Fixed the blue lens too... Cant wait to see it tonight... Cleaned the inside of the speedo too... It was pretty easy to take apart...


Great job on the bus, I have one question, my generator light (Red) is on the left side and oil (Green) is on the right
do I need to switch them?
