Powering clocks outside of car

  Renault Clio 16V
Hey all!

I change LEDs in clocks for people and I wanna know if there's a way to power the dial + screen illuminations outside of the car. When I do MK2 clocks I usually strip my own dash off to test them and anybody who's stripped off a MK2 dash knows how much of a ballache it can be, however I'll be doing my first set of MK3 clocks soon and I don't think that'll be compatible with my car.

I've got a 12v lead and have been experimenting with lighting up a MK2 dash using that but I have yet to find the sweet spot that lights up the dials as if the sidelights are on or the mileage screens, any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!
