Looks much better than I thought it would. Is it just me or is it a darker or less glossy than the bezel? You gas pedal needs help.

Where is the dash piece that goes under the steering wheel?

Radio bezel is 2 years old so it has lost it's shine

That is actually the hood release hanging there.

I didn't put everything back on when I took the pictures. I still have it

Looks good. I like that you went with the black center piece on the gauges. I like it better installed than I did on the other thread where you posted the pictures. Very good job.

I think the black center piece makes it look much better, not so loud. How do you like the pedals? Are they super slippery when wet?

Peddles are okay some times I like them some times I hate them

The gas peddle is a PITA it will slip off some times. I finally took it off waiting on BULLY to send me a new fastener kit



Need to get some good night time shots. The 2 center gauges glow red with the cluster light bouncing off the red paint.

Here is one. Kinda blurry hard to hold the camera for 45 seconds with out moving it

Where are your red LEDs?

You should clear coat them for that factory shine....

I still need some instructions for that and I also need to know which wire on the gauge I can hook to a battery for power

Looks good. I like it better with only the rings painted than the whole cluster.

Looks good!. Here is an idea though, why don't you trim the center bezel to match your gauges. By that I mean painting the whole bezel black, except for a 1/4 inch lick around each opening (HVAC controls, stero, etc) This would match your gauges and you OHC better. I don't have photo shop so I can't show you what it would look like.

I don't like the bezel... sorry... the gauges would look SICK if they were the only red (or other small accents) but I think the bezel throws the whole thing off... sorry
