    Here is one of the better ones: http://www.geocities.com/somhawk2002...wk2002pg2.html

    I used that one and its pretty straight forward.

    sweet thanks man, just one question I thought that rotating the needles would throw out the settings... it doesn't harm anything to gently spin ALL the needles to the 12 oclock position? my overlay comes as one peice.

    Yeah, no prob on gently spinning to the 12 o'clock pos. Just be careful to alight them up perfectly with the existing areas or you will have double vision if you don't.

    Good luck.

    hey guys, I have my overlay lightly tapped on and lined up. the lights on the left and right hand side *the display messages* are all perfect. However, the gauges are all coming through really shaded and dark... any one ever have this problem before? All I can think of at this point is upgrade the bulbs for the gauges...

    Whats the best brightest bulbs I can get for my gauges and where do I find them?

    Mine seem a little shaded but, I thought that was about as normal as they would get. Never heard of any brighter bulbs though.
