STEP 1: This is a Renault Megane, ready for the HUD.  

STEP 2: Using Google image search, search for large image of a set of lit up speedometer clocks / rev counters.

Look for:
- Speedo Night
- Clocks Night
- Dash Night...... Etc Etc..

Copy it off the Internet Explorer, and paste it on the car image.

STEP 3: Hit Ctrl+T and use the grab handles to flip it, and then skew and change the shape of it to fit in with the windscreen...  

STEP 4: OK.. head for the layers box.. Ok, go down the list and pick the layer setting: Screen.  

STEP 5: It should look a bit like this. Looks good on darker window screens and night time scenes.

STEP 6: As seen on my Opel Astra..
