You will need:
Flat Black paint
Wrapping Wire-30 gauge from Radioshack (You can probably use Ignition wire or Battery wire from Detail Master).
An engine-I'm using an Eclipse motor
Hypodermic needle-25 gauge
Check Oil Wire
To make the Oil Check wire take a piece of the wire and make it straight. Now put it on a flat surface and lightly place a knife on the wire. Make back and forth motions. This will give you a nice cut so you can take of the tubing.
