Alright, dammit, I have to vent...
Rule #1: Do NOT let a mechanic
ever attempt to do any aftermarket items for you.
Rule #2: If you want something done right, do it yourself, and LEARN from it.
Okay, I'm sorry I do not yet have results from the cluster swap, but the above rules are the reason why. Out of pure laziness (and the fact that the mechanic assured me he could do it), I have now wasted $140 on something I should've done myself. The mechanic apparently did NOT remove the original gauge cover when he installed the overlay, in fact he *&%$ing GLUED
the new overlay on top of the old one, and even razor bladed a rectangle so that you could read what gear the car was in. On top of all this, he has screwed up my gauge readings, minus the tripo and odom. He is going to have an interesting time taking it all back off on Tuesday.
Needless to say, I am a little pissed off about this, so I am sorry if this has no positive results as of yet, however, I am going to take pictures of what it at least looks like
(during the day of course, because the light doesn't go through since he simply glued it on TOP! Grr...) on there. You'll have to not mind the glue, he did that, and your application should NOT use glue AT ALL!
Note: If you have trouble getting the overlay to stay on, you may use some adhesive tape, but under NO circumstances should you GLUE it on.
