um..the numbers and such in the stainless are laser cut out. the stainless gauges are supposed to be put on top of the existing black gauges to keep the color, but i took the stock ones out and like i said i'm planing on putting leds in it because i don't like having green lights on my dash. so basically if you do it like the instructions say, it will shine through the same as stock.
