      Easy to Read. By day the gauge face is black with crisp clean markings, but by night the numbers glow bright blue, making these gauges distinctive and easy to read.

      Installs Over Factory Gauges. No needle removal required. This gauge insert overlay was designed to install by slipping right over the existing gauge needles, so it won't disturb your gauges sensitive calibration.

      Technical note: Depending on your instrument cluster configuration, some minor wiring or splicing may be required with this installation.

        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.

      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.
