That's right. Since I heard that no one makes indiglo, or electroluminescent gauge faces for the 1gen anymore I decided to make some myself.
Pricing: $50 for a custom design. This is just for the design. This means it costs $50 for a custom file be it .pdf, .cdr, .ai or whatever other format you want it in. I will accept $30 up front and $22 after it's done (I don't need PayPal double charging a split-disbursement.) You are allowed to freely distribute the design you purchase. If you buy a design and your friend wants to use it, feel free to let him use it. I'd appreciate a kickback but it is not required. If you charge money for your friend to use it, that is not allowed. If he says thanks by getting you a gift or some beer, that’s a good thing too.
Option 1: After you pay the $50, I will tell you how to make the gauges yourself. I have some supplies that I still have from buying in bulk that I will sell you. I will tell you when to purchase from just one vendor or just get it however you can. ($50 to me DiY costs $25-$100 depending upon what you already have = $75-$150 TOTAL)
Option 1a: I can print out the gauges and attach them to indiglo. It will be your responsibility to trim them, cut out holes, get an inverter and hook it up. This cost will vary depending upon what I can find the indiglo for ($25-$50) plus shipping (about $10). ($85-$110 TOTAL Shipped)
Option 2: After you pay the $50, I will tell you the name of someone who can manufacture gauge faces that are two piece, top plastic face and bottom indiglo light. His charge is about $120 USD (HVAC, trip computer, etc are extra) (He doesn't charge USD.) ($50 to me and $120 to him = $170 TOTAL)
Option 3: For an extra $150 over the $50 I will have the gauges manufactured for you. They will be in two layers, the top plastic face that looks professional and the bottom indiglo piece that lights it all up. HVAC, trip computer, etc are extra and will only cost you what it costs me. ($50 gauge design + $30 shipping, handling and getting the gauges made + $120 make the gauges = $200 TOTAL)

I’m going to guess the extra “idiot light strip” will cost an extra $20 to make. If you haven’t seen my work or if you want to see more, just let me know.
Design time over 4 hours: $10/hr (Once I hit 5 hours, you owe $5. If I take 4:59 on your gauges, you owe nothing.)

2gen: I can make a matching HVAC panel included in design price. I am able to do this for 1gen, I just don't have the scan of the panel.
