Ordered these...

I have these now, just came in....I get my instrument cluster Thursday, I was wondering are these going to light up like the shown here

The gauges, a little ricer but hey, also came with no directions....

These are them here front and back. Im worried the green light will show through these....

I had some on my 02. Just make sure you get them very flush near the guages. I had a problem where my tach needle was hitting the overlay and not letting it move at all. So dont install everything back together before you test them like I did. it was such a pain in the *** I just left it and drove sans a Tach. Didnt really need it, but it was still a little annoying being @ 1k all the time!

Dana - They sell colour needles, but they are expensive...like more then I pain for my cluster and these together.


Shane - It came with a dimmer switch, Im just hopeing its lights will over power the green grow, or I may just try to cover the green.

Take out the bulbs that illuminate the gauges. NOT THE Other ones {blinkers and idiot lights } then wire those to your light switch. It will be beautifull.

Or change them out to blue LED's like I did. This will illuminate the needles and gear selector indicator to match the gauge faces.

I have them, the green does not show through. Mine came with a 2 sided tape on/off switch which I wired to come out just under the steering column. They are super bright at full brightness but mine are also wired to the stock dimmer.
