MASK-Gems 202 dll it here

Resize wire element by 95%

Resize frame3,fuel meter, speedometer and steering wheel by 35%.
 place ribbon5 and button1 onto the tag.
Duplicate the frame and place around the tag. Resize paper9 by 50% and place as the frame's background.
Resize little car by 50% and place the traffic light to the right.
 Add your medium sized or closeup tube.
 Add your name with a thick outline in a silver gradient. Add Eye Candy 5 Impact glass at default to the inside of the lettering.
 ass your license number and artist URL.
 To animate this tag duplicate the wheel and free rotate it 90 to the left. Repeat this until toy have 180 degree rotation so you should have four layers. Close the top three layers.
 Duplicate the traffic light and using your darken/light brush sized 50 click the light bulb 7 times to lighten. then duplicate the original and work on the other light. You should have four layers . On the fourth layer lighten all the lights.
Duplicate the gas gauge and free hand select the red pointer. Promote this layer.Close the pointer layer and using your clone brush set to size 10 color in the red pointer until it is all gone.
Duplicate this layer then using your color changer tool flood fill the gas light in yellow. You will see other parts  turn yellow. erase all parts except the yellow gas symbol. Now duplicate your red pointer and using your pick tool rotate it alittle to the right. Repeat again and place the pointer showing a half tank. then duplicate that pointer and free rotate it 90 to the left. adjust your pointer so then the circle matches and u don't have a jumpy pointer.
Merge the yellow gas icon with one of the colored gauges as well as the rotated to the left pointer.
Close that layer and the pointer promoted layer as well as the duplicate. confused yet? LOL In other words you need the gas light lit layer. the original layer,a layer with the pointer colored in and the pointer layer that was promoted.You can chose to merge the half tank pointer with the colored gauge to make things easier. why I didn't? i was thinking to add more layers.
Animate this tag as we animate all tags by copying and pasting the merged tag to animation shop. As you have noticed you have three frames with the gas gauge layers. just repeat the  the second gas gauge layer to have the needle travel back.
