Default Looky what I got in the mail today....(Reverse Glow Gauges)

Reverse glow gauges!!!


Now to get things torn apart..


Remove the clear plastic cover and the black trim.


Slide the first piece under the gauge needles. Helps to have them pointing upwards when doing this.


Putting this piece on was a little PITA because of the trip odemeter reset button is pretty tall. But the display is pretty flexible.


I had used double sided tape to keep the panels from coming up and stuff.

All put back together and lit up.


The transformer box comes with a foam sticky pad that I stuck to the steering column frame. Plenty of wiring to string around.


The momentary On/Off button is thin and has a sticky back to attach to the dash. I have to get the alcohol pads out and clean a spot for it...
and completed


Will take some night pics when it gets dark out.

No dimmer control, but I could have gotten one for like $13 more. My dash already runs at full brilliance because of the fubar headlight switch.
