Question White dials led's and red needles

I got an e36 318i 1998 and I am planning on adding White dials to my cluster and replace the bulbs with White led's. Also I read about colouring the needles red with a sharpie pen. has anyone got any threads, links or tips for doing this mod, especially the best way to remove the needles safely.

Cheers peeps :-)

Warning !! You can remove the needle BUT the spindle that holds it may retract further, giving you a false speed reading when you put it back on !!!
As you can tell... I am not a fan of these modifications, they really look great but not worth the hassle/risks.
