Thats pretty cool! I wouldn't mind doing it if I didn't have to take my dash apart to put it on.

If I remember right, N3lz did a neat job with his, and didn't have to buy anything. He had it on the car domain site.

Bob(N3elz) did the "take apart the whole cluster, scrape off the green filament, and painted it with stained glass" mod.

Bryce....What are you talking about??? Don't you have a tach?? Our gauges are the same....and if you pick a 02 or 01 it's the same gauges. It's gotta be a glitch with the site's info.

in '04 they changed the gauges completely...2 big round gauges and a info panel w/ electronic odometer/trip meter.

They stack the new one to the old one. Looks like the cutouts are a cheap way of getting the oem idiot lights to shine thru.
