Liking the look of the dials, is there enough contrast between the white and yellow to see them clearly in daylight?

I need to sharpen the edges a bit before printing... It will be printed on clear plastic so the white bits will be see through, as I have red dash lights... If all goes to plan, the clear bits will be red and the yellow will remain yellow... Just experimenting atm...
