    So did you get the Reverse Glow Gauge or just an Overlay? It's not too bad putting it back in...just gotta take your time with it....you know, be careful...don't force it....caress it...like the legs of a drugged up, hot supermodel

    Never tried it but, I want to do that and also paint the shroud red so the white overlay for the headlight switch stands out more.

    What words of wisdom here?

    Good Idea, however, if you want more of a stylish look without going cheesy, I would recommend getting some good quality Red Vinyl/Leather and wrapping the shroud in it! It's a bit more complex than just spray painting it, but the results are...awesome to say the least! A couple of people over on Tech have done it....like Blakbird24 did to his...and he even did French Seams! Heres the thread http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/showth...wrapping+vinyl


    Just my .11 (still due to current inflation) though

    Looks pretty good but, I doubt I could do that. May be a good article for an upholstery shop to do.
