    I'm only a little foggy on one part of the instructions. Step #8......Where it says to connect the red wire from the inverter assembly to the gray wire. Are you supposed to insert the red wire into the same slot with the gray wire or disconnect the gray wire and solder the two wires together? Just wanted to make sure on this just to play it safe.

    • Stack Racing suggests soldering the gray wire to the same location as where the red wire is connected.

    I live in Canada, does this have a KM/H option which has KM/H as the Primary (dominant) Font size? Or is this only MPH as primary?

    • This unfortunately does not have an option where KM/H is the primary.

    Will this product work with white face gauges? I currently have white face gauges and the coloring of the gauges when lit up are not even throughout. Would these overlays work the same with white face gauges underneath versus stock black gauges?

    • I belive so these have the lights built into them.Some kind of electro luminecnt circuit board yet flexible enough to install. So anything behind it (old gauges/overlays) do not effect the overall look and function of them whatsoever.

      Great Product

      Easy install, looks great. The lighting on my gauges looked really old and beat up. This product really made a great difference.

      reverse glow requires soldering

      I just want a plug a play kind of solution and the last steps of this install require soldering with a vague pic of exactly where to solder. No thanks.

      Poor Design

      The product is bright, but after following the instructions the lights did not work correctly, and I ended up having to wire a ground separately and using a completely different 12v power source. And I'm a certified diesel mechanic so it was not due to lack of experience. I gave it a 2 star for incorrect description but they are bright.

      WOW factor for little $

      easy install proper fit on my 96gt. no hidden surprises fits around indicator needles snuggly, no tape needed when you reinstall face plate it clamps the new inserts in place, to prevent any slippage. just use your voltage light to verify 12v. with light switch on.

      Underwhelming Quality

      First of all, the "Install Guide" isn't referencing the gauges but what you have to do to remove the cluster. Also, it shows you where to solder. That really is the extent of the guide. A summer intern with 10 extra minutes could make a better manual. The quality is very reminiscent of ebay. These should not cost $30. It is the same technology as EL Wire... Cheap.

      Minor change for a big impact

      Very fast shipping like always, great quality. Easy to install. But a huge impact on the look. Driving the car your always gonna look at the gauges more then anything, so do yourself a favor and just order them, you will thank yourself

      Cool, but so troublesome.

      First off, the instructions were extremely vague. It talked about splicing wires II didn't even have. I had to look up numerous install guides to get the correct instructions. After installing it started making a high pitched, low level, whining noise from the dash. The wires themselves are extremely tiny and hard to solder. After finally getting everything together the overlays themselves were too snug and I had to again take apart my cluster to fix the overlay so that my needles would actually work. They look good and all, but I would never pay full price for this headache.

      Pretty cool gauges

      I only had one issue with it, the wires that went to the dimmer switch were loose and had to re-sauder the 2 wire back on. But I didn't think it was a big deal

      very cool

      these look awsome, I connected them to a key on wire so the are on any time the car is running. even during the day they look good. adding the chrome rings and led bulbs to the factory lighting finshes this off nicely. I mounted the little power supply under the headlight switch next to the rear defroster switch. caution: the power supply wire and the adjuster wires are very small and break easily. I soldered the power wires to a larger wire and the connected to power and ground. enjoy

      Looks Spectacular

      These reverse glow gauges are awesome coupled with the chrome bezel rings, it really makes for a refined look. The instructions are pretty good and covers pretty much everything. Buy these, you will not be disappointed.

      great look and install

      These gauges have a really great look and are easy to install. Took maybe 30 mins to install. I didn't hook up the power like it says to in the instructions though I just hooked it up through my stereo wiring. I plan on getting the reverse glow for my heat and ac controls next. So if you want to upgrade the look of your dash I highly recommend these.

      GREAT PRODUCT! :)

      Product was super easy to install. The instructions were also great except for step 8 the "GRAY" wire for the power supply is incorrect for the 96 gt; the correct wire is a brownish color but still in the center. Other than that i'm completely happy with this product. Money well spent.

      Stock by day:Eyecatching by night!

      These gauges are sweet. They still look stock in the daylight compared to the white gauges, but at night they glow just as bright. The install on this was a piece of cake, the instructions were spot on and took me less than 15 min to get the entire cluster out. When attaching the middle tach and speedo face gauge, the wire connected is in a pretty hard area. I pushed it down into the crack that separates the middle and left gauge face and that helped to keep it out of the way. Very cool and it retains your factory stuff so if you want you can revert back to factory simply by removing them. Very cool and would recommend this to anyone looking to spice up their interior at night!

      Sleek Look

      I previously owned the White gauges but they didn't give off the mean look so I decided to go with these instead and I must say it looks fierce when you hit the high RPM's
