Should look like this

Step 4: Dont Miss It

You dont have to be very precise just make sure you didn't forget any line or number by holding it against the light
The numbers and lines should let the light thru without changing the color

Step 5: LED

Trial and error
Arrange the LED strip as u wish just make sure its gona light all the number properly
If you choose RGB it might glow some numbers more or less or even show one color more than the other.

    Just got an idea but i aint that smart and dont have the time to do it.
    Using addresable LED strip and an arduino to program several color choices and choose between them by a single button or even better tap in the ECU read the data and use those to change the color instead of moving the needles in the speedometer gauge.
    Ex: all white numbers just the 0km/h green and 1000rpm green as you step on the gas the green color goes up and somewhere changes to blue to indicate city limit speed and after that red.
    Needles are so last century.
    It would be awesome for something like that.
