I recently painted my needles (to all match - had a new speedo put in), and now, both the speedo needle and oil pressure needle sometimes stick to their respective pegs. If you just tap them, they go free, but this is EXTREMELY annoying. How can I fix this?

I think the sticking needles are caused by sticky paint...

Get out the cluster and clean the needles-spot that makes contact with the respective pegs...
