Hey Andrew, Posting the pics here would just be wrong. Look over at www.damemorder.com/img/1/ It'* a directory listing, 26+ are of the HUD.

perfect! i guess i have to call it even now even if those pics didnt cost ya $8

pretty nifty little thing huh... weird angles and stuff...

the actual display is just how i pictured it, just smaller...it makes sense though...

does that one work dame? if i sent you a sample of the film i got, could you put it on and see if its worth doing..going by ur judgement?

i meant...would you install the film directly on the digit panel, not on the glass, and then install it and see how it looks?

Alrighty, I got the tint samples, The one thet you sent two of, That'* the one that works the best. It could stand to be a little more "blue" but not much darker, If you get what I'm saying...

Here'* the install procedure:
1. Remove the defroster grill. Lift on the side closest to you, Use your hand only, and rotate it towards the windsheild, Then pull it towards yourself.
2. Pull the HUD Control Unit out, Four T15 screws hold it on, two angled back and two straight up and down. These are the Hex head ones. Slide the unit as far out as it will go, No need to disconnect.
3. Remove the Hud Control Unit Cover, Four T15 screws hold this on too. They're the only four visible from the top. Lift the cover straight up. This is a good time to clean the window on it.
4. Look around inside and you should see the HUD display, Cut the tint to the right size and slide it on to the front of the HUD display. Make sure there are no bubbles as this will cause a blurry spot.
5. Reassemble.

Pretty simple eh? It looks great, There'* a slight tint of green, But blue is the main color. No noticable dimming either. It'* kind of distracting now that it looks soooooo good. I may need to tint my guages next time I have them out....
