- Mustang Gauge Inserts Installation Guide
$39.99FREE Shipping on orders over $49
Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m here with a couple of different ways to trick out the interior of any Mustang, thanks to these white face reverse glow gauge inserts and matching white face A/C gauge inserts, fitting all 94-04 Mustangs. These white face gauge inserts, are reminiscent of the white gauges found in the 94 and up Cobras. Of course the styling is a little more radical especially at night when the reverse glow feature comes into play. The term reverse glow refers to the actual face of the gauge themselves, as you can see here during the day the gauges are bright white, but at night or whenever your headlights are on, the white part remains dark but the numbers and letters glow in a very cool and easily readable blue light. You may think these inserts are solely for the Mustang owner out there who enjoys a more aftermarket type of look, but that’s not always the case, in fact, many of our customers have told us how much they enjoy these white face gauges, because they’re easier to read during the day, but if you’re having difficulty seeing that red needle on the black background, like in your factory cluster, then these inserts may be for you. To match the look of these overlays we’re also featuring this matching white A/C control insert as well, available separately. A few nice things about this piece, for one, it’s easy on your wallet, it’s also a piece of cake to install in about 15 minutes, and it really completes the look when compared to these white face gauge overlays. In addition to the overlays you’ll find a dimmer switch and 12V power source needed for the install. Speaking of the install, you’ll want to make sure you have a T-15 torx tool, some basic hand tools, and either a soldering iron or quick splice connectors or bite connectors, just depending on how you prefer to wire everything up. Since you will have to disassemble your cluster slightly and do some minor wiring, we’re going to call this one an hour from start to finish. These white face glow gauge and A/C inserts offer some very unique styling at night and improved visibility during the day for a price that’s sure to fit into anyone’s budget, be sure to check them out right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Excellent upgrade to stock gauge light but this is a very persnickety install. Soldering is required and it is very easy to damage the electric connections as you wrestle the gauge cluster in and out of the dash. Nothing too hard but if it is your first time taking apart dash/light switch/locating wires/soldering etc--do not expect to do this in an hour. It looks amazing though and is totally worth the effort and money.Helpful (0)

This is very easy to install if you know what you're doing. Instructions are very vague and make no sense. Let's simplify. Splice red wire to blue/white wire. Use the circular connection (buy at hardware store) which a screw can go through and splice it onto the black wire. There is a screw behind the panel to screw it to and make connection. Once done, connect everything and when on, turn dial that is part of the kit to high. Then wrap the entire knob with electrical tape. Put everything back. By splicing the blue/white wire you can now use original dial to dim the light on the console. Hope this helps.Helpful (2)

Great mod for your GT!
Item arrived very quickly and intact. I installed the guages in about an hour with little hassle. The only thing I changed from the directions is I bypassed the dimmer that came with the kit. All you have to do is cut the dimmer off, and connect both wires together. Then simply red goes to the blue and white stripe wire off your light knob wiring harness. And black to ground. They look great and function perfectly!Helpful (1)

My favorite minor-league mod!
Great visibility at night! The white during the day is much better than stock.Helpful (0)

Nice when done but good grief.
Product looks awesome! Directions awful. 99 04. Do not use grey wire in middle. Use blue white wire. Also. Cut the dimmer switch it comes with wrap wires together and tape up. Ground screw is on right side behind instrument panel. Took 4 hours once I figured it out. So far so good.Helpful (0)

Instructions not correct
Bought this product due to the bulbs in my cluster going out and wanting to upgrade instead of just buying new bulbs. First off, they look great and installing the face itself was easy. The first issue comes with how they don't lay flat requiring glue or some other modification to make the dials not stick. The second issue is how the instructions in the box simply don't work, I plug it in, make the connections and nothing lights up. I tried doing what some of what the other reviews have suggested and just came out with more spliced wires than needed. I'm going to have to get a Volt Meter and find the correct wires to splice into before I can actually solder anything in place. Beautiful product, but the instructions are just false for a 99 Mustang GT.Helpful (0)

Gauges look nice but the needle would read them slightly and sometimes stickHelpful (0)
Isn't the redline wrong on this gauge? My car redline's at around 5800rpm but this gauge redlines at 6800rpm. Please explain why this gauge redlines so high.
This gauge insert redline is higher because they are made to fit both the GT and the Cobra models.
Will this gauge work with a V6 or will it be off? I want the GT gauges because the MPH goes to 150 but my V6 only goes to 120MPH
You can't put a GT gauge face on your V6 cluster. There are two ways to accommodate your need: 1) Buy a Mustang GT 2)Buy a GT gauge cluster assembly.
I am getting the reverse glow white face dash kit. Do I need led bulbs to replace the factory bulbs? If so how many and what color? Thank you very much
This Reverse Glow Gauge Insert Kit has its own lighting system built in and will not require the factory bulbs to be upgraded.
Can I order a replacement dimmer switch/knob for the reverse glow gauges? Mine is damaged and appears to be stuck in the "off" position resulting in no gauge lights at night.
Unfortunately, we don't carry the dimmer switch individually. You may be able to find a replacement dimmer switch fairly cheap at a local auto parts store near you if you don't want to purchase a new kit just for that.
Who makes this gauge? I dont see a brand anywhere.
If there is no brand to be seen, it is safe to assume that it is our in-house American Muscle brand.
Unfortunately at this time, we do not currently offer just the inverter switch. This insert only comes as a kit.
The White Face Reverse Glow Gauge Insert will not effect the odometer's illumination.
The White Face Reverse Glow Gauge Insert will not have an adjustable color. Gauge colors in the customer photos will vary based on when these were purchased, and the quality of the camera and lighting used.
The White Face Reverse Glow Gauge Insert will not be compatible with Bullit models.
This White Face Reverse Glow Gauge Insert will not work with the Mach 1.
This will not work for the Mach 1. This is specifically designed to fit the GT models specifically.
Unfortunately, at this time, we do not carry gauge inserts in Km/h for an 03 V6, it would be best recommended to source something like that online.
The dimmer switch included in the White Face Reverse Glow Gauge Insert will not replace the OEM Dimmer switch. This can be mounted in the dash by drilling, or secured under the dash once adjusted.
These White Face Revers Glow Gauges do not require LED bulbs.
