One of the few flaws in our Spectra is the instruments. Grey on grey, and in many daylight conditions they're very hard to read.

How much trouble/expense would it be to backlight the speedo and tach?

I'd like the radio and clock to be more readable too, but something like the Accord's very readable main gauges would be nice.

I like the Forte's Supervision gauges. I doubt you can retrofit them though.
