Vehicle: OH HAIIII GUYSSSS! I am cool bc i copied HOSS the BOSS with this idea!
They look like it i guesss. Why are they in 3 sections though? What if they don't line up correctly on your cluster? Than you will be viewing gaps in your cluster and it's something you have to see everytime you get in your car...
IMO, ill never install gauges again. Did it in my other car and i had to remove the needles and do my best to get them back to normal. And i lost some of those black pins that hold the needles at 0mph and 0rpm's and such like that. It was a major headache and not worth it... Get a whole new cluster if you can. But than again, other people have had nothing but good things to say about installing gauges. I would personally take the info from me though Save yourself a pain. Unless you can get the slide over guages or something, don't do it.
The actual product they ship might differ, but that pic looks like it's for the 94-98's. The one I used was just a one piece overlay. I recall having to remove the 0mph/0rpm stop pins, but it was no big deal. Putting the gauge needles back just right was a little tricky, though; took a couple tries to get it right.
I think I got mine from Brothers Performance for like 25 bucks or something. If you get the kind where you have to pull the needles off make sure you remember where they all were, like fuel. If I were to do it over I would have just boight a new cluster, which is on the list.
if you want your gauges 100% accurate after removing them, follow my how-to, located here. it's better than just throwing your needles on after doing the swap. after all, what's the sense in having gauges if you know in your heart they're no longer accurate?
yeah, they were cool at first but after about a year i got tired of them. the ones i got, i can change the color between 6 different shades of green or blue, and can control the intensity of the light so it's tolerable (if i turn it all the way up, i can hardly see at night cause the interior is too brightly lit), but i just think a good backlit set of gauges looks cleaner at night. in the daytime they look great though, just like any set of white-face gauges. i guess my tastes changed cause when i bought those gauges (in 2003) i loved em.
I'd look for the autometer gauge cluster. Im trying to find one for my car. They are sick man. I love those things. Looks so sexy.

those are OK, but do they not look a lil ricey to you? And those ones off ebay only go up to 7k rpms, so I'm not about to have to guess my RPMS every time I look at the tac.
those are the ones i have, i only dis like the inner red line part?the smaller half circle.. but they just slide over the needles and you can adjust the brightness. got em to match the white faced guages in the pillar
