Funnily enough just had some other vinyl stickers done and with them they had the option of gloss or matt laminated finishing

I forgot to ask on your protoype version with the firm that buried them to do a matt finish!

Looked at your LED crimbo light string in the housing above the face plate and it looks like it would be overpowering to the red coloured lighting from below.
The lighting is dim able, so you can get what ever works for you.
And, I did not like the back lighting with no top light...it just was not very readable to me at night...with just a moderate amount of top light to illuminate the needle and markings it works well.
I'll try this set up with no top light, and then add some as i go
Just to add on to this.. I ended up using the same top light setting as I had with the OEM speedo face.......because I forgot to change it.
But it turns out, its perfect amount of light added to the top of the new speedo face, just like it was with the old one.
