Default Are these Speedo/instrumental clusters worth buying?

MY normal speedo or oem cluster had white covers im assuming they were not stock, which were stuck on (unless im wrong and made mistakes). I had some bull**** ebay inserts with their own wires that you would have to ground connect and its own adjustable dimmer. The white gauges were just way too dim and i wanted something brighter. I took it apart and me and my buddy peeled off the white covers and nothing was behind that just the internal parts and lights, thinking about it now i think i was an idiot. I broke the little needle connecting the volts arrow (forgot the name of that). So ive had issues with the cluster and i dont even have a full lit up rpm speed and everything else gauge. I thought about buying one of these to just do it all original again. My question is also if the foxbodys came with only the black gauges or also came with white ones.

I believe all the fox body's came stock with black gauges. I could be wrong by I don't think cobras and saleens had white face gauges till the changeover to sn95 chassis. That cluster does look good though. Go for it!.
