I thought about getting a set of those a while back, but I would miss having the "Demon Dash" (as my son called it).

Might still get a setup for The Missus' Van one day, though. They are pretty cool.

They are nice, but it looks like (from the pics at least) that the cutting around the guages isn't all that straight. Is that just the picture or is it really jagged around the system monitor area?

Well, if you had noticed I apologized for my crappy MS Paint editing. The big one is 2 images together.

I had those in my old Ford Focus, they lasted about 8 months until they stopped working. Also my gf'* new rice mobile has them, but they dont work either. It sucks, because you can't see anything at night

I went out driving last night and turned the panel off. Though my lights were still on, the factory lighting still came through the needles and I was able to still see them.

I understood that part...I'm talking about around the system monitor box...it looks jagged.

Here is what I am talking about:



I'm not trying to be a PITA, I'm curious because I'm interested in doing this, but those jagged edges would annoy me if they are actually there.

Thanks,
Erik

Yea, I was doing some trimming in that area, tried to pull some tape off and it pulled the paint also.
