Step 1: Disassembly and Parts

I took two speedometers from Peugeot Speedfight 2 50cc scooter and teared them apart and ordered 12v blue led light stip with adhesive back.

Step 2: Backlight Mod & Volt Meter

From all parts i gathered best ones and started modifying speedometer,i started by drilling hole in main housing and took metal file and smoothed edges where voltmeter goes. Then took 12v Led strip and made it all around shell.

I dont have any photos of soldering but i just connected positive and negative wires from led strip and voltmeter and added switch between components and 12v battery.

Step 3: Finishing Product

I started with two broken speedometers and they turned out in something as beautiful as this.

This mod together costed me 2$

1$ for 1m blue led strip and 1$ for voltmeter I thing that it was well worth it and it will look just grate on my scooter.

But be sure to share your opinion on this build!
