Corsa (standard model) Speedo reads 10-130 (no rev. counter) Part No - 400RR
Has anyone fitted these? And if so are they Backlit, that is, do the numbers etc light up from the light behind them?

yeah cos the actual numbers should be transparent so the light will still pass through.

Yea i assumed this, but the current ones i have are tin and not back lit! I need back lit dials to use my LEDs in the dash, and i have a feeling i read on here before that the dials for my dash would not be back lit. Do they replace the current dials or stick over the top?

Barry, I assume you have the non rev counter dials with the tin dials in? As you said, they are side lit not back lit. If you stick Lockwood dials over the top, they will still be side lit. You "could" drill a series of small holes in the steel dials before sticking the replacements on, this might allow some light to shine through from the rear.

Scrap that idea above, it would only allow for very patchy light if it worked. You would need to cut away all the illuminated parts on the steel dial.

I know the dials with rev counter simply stick on, but the old dials need removing. I'm not sure how it works with the steel ones, I guess they stick over the original dials but not sure. Contact Lockwood, they should be able to tell you for certain.
