I am new and have not searched for this thread but have searched the internet so don't flame me please.

Anyone know of any place that sells reverse indiglo gauges for the 6?

I found one place that can make them for 95 dollars but they are not taking orders till after the new year. I have searched hi and low on the net and no luck. Found plenty for the Mazdaspeed, 626 and so forth but nothing for the 6

Any help is appreciated.

i doubt you will find anyone who makes indiglo gauges for the 6 because the 6 already has optional electro lumenescent gauges from the factory (as an option)

I bought mine used, well I traded in my 2003 Tiburon and got the 03 6. I got the 6S with all the goodies. I guess if I had of bought it from the factory I would of known about that option.

Well I guess I will wait till the new year and have that company make them for me. If you know anyone who wants them let me know and I will send the link and number to them.

I guess it's a personal like. I had the res ones factory in my Tiburon and changed to the Blue reverse and it was much easier on the eyes and it looked better.

The 6 has the big gauges and they are red as well and I think it's too much red. I personally just prefer the blue color myself. Always been a fan of blue.

blue's my favorite color, but not inside a car. i think red's the best because it doesn't hurt your night vision (and it's my second favorite color). it's just like being inside a plane's cockpit

Not exactly. In an airplane, red usually signifies a warning. Most indications in a cockpit are either white, green, amber, or red, depending on what they're meant to display.

Also, when military pilots use night vision goggles, red lights are by far the worst, because it's closest to the infra-red light the goggles are designed to detect. I know a helicopter pilot who says taillights look brighter than headlights under NVG.

my bad, i thought i had seen pictures of cockpits at night and they were lit up in red. oh well.

oh, and i wasn't talking about nvg's, i was talking about using regular ol' peepers at night. i don't usually drive around wearing nvg's....

but that's enough of this off-topicness

Sorry, man, but most every cockpit I've ever seen (and it's a lot) is mostly red. The exception are data displays that needed color-coding to signify varying things, like aircraft weather radar. Even in aircraft where the gauges are not displayed in red for various reasons the lighting within the cockpit is all red.

At night the color red is the least attention getting, and warnings are usually displayed in white/yellow (note our check engine light is yellow).

Older plane -- C-7 Caribou:

None of the new multi-colored LCD displays of newer planes, so all guages and dials are entirely red.

Don't get any more modern than the 777:

Notice it's all backlit red except where color-coded data is displayed. The upper area, where the pilot will be looking out the window is all red so that the light doesn't affect his night vision.

A helicopter too (Sea King):

Helicopter cockpits often illuminate as much red as possible as the pilot is frequently looking around in all directions and cannot have his vision affected.

Yes, blue, even though it doesn't seem that way, is the more destracting then red. There's a writeup on it somewhere.
