Hey guys im new here, but i have a question about 1998 Prelude gauge needles. Are they tinted red or is there paint on them to make them look red. If there is a paint could I take it off with paint thinner? Im new to hondas so could anyone help me out

be VERY careful if you are taking needles off, the mechanisms behind it are so delicate and fragile, easy to mess them up.
