How Replace The Tachometer Needle - GPL Request Area - SimRacing Mirror Zone (srmz.net)
The pictures to illustrate the text are gone though... Let me know if you need any help.

Since my post, I managed to switch the position of the ammeter and fuel pressure needles, so this is where I am at right now (excuse the basic looking gauges for now, I still need to add some reflections).
The three things I would like to do now:
1. How can I lengthen the voltmeter needle so it reaches the hole at the bottom?
2. Can I make my needle 'skinnier'?
3. Can I change the rotation angle? (It doesn't seem to be determined by the physics)
The file I am editing is c10.3do btw.

First you need to check if the same vertices are used for some other needle and if is the case, you need to add new vertices to the 3DO and use them as reference to the polygon you want to make skinnier and longer.
You just check all the sections for the needles in the 3DO and there you can see the vertices used for every one of them.

In that particular case Y is the length ( from 3.5 to 20 mm.) and Z is the thickness (2mm. from start to finish)

Likewise with polys mapped on track objects in 123DO

The last thing I would like to do is to add a second polygon below the voltmeter's mounting point. However, GPLEd won't allow me to add any additional nodes to the ptach. What do I need to do here?

If I understood correctly, you need to do that in GPL track editor.
I mean add vertices and (carefully) nodes.
Just keep backups of every modifications you do because things might not work in GPL after a change.
