Newest mod thanks for everyones help

Got bored tuesday and got around to doing the gauges mod. Here's how it looks. Tell me what you think. Still gotta tear it back apart and fix the needles but it looks good.

The hardest part about this mod was getting the needles back on. The author of this mod suggested using a screw driver to remove the green stuff. Sandpaper works MUCH better. Takes like two seconds to come off. Besides if you screw up your gauges all the better reason to buy sport trac gauges
