    White Face Gauges Install Help!

    I just bought white faced gauges for my 98 Camaro. Any advice as to how to do it would be great!
    How do you get the needles of without the pin moving? How do you make sure they go on the same way they came off?

    It depends on the typeyou got. Mine are a McEwinoverlay. I did not have to remove the needles. The overlay "slid" on. Idid have one of the smaller gauge needles bind abit but was able to tweek it back. I like this mod.I would not suggest removing the needles at all.You set yourself up for a recalibration nightmare.

    Its the kind where you have to take the needles off. Is there a place that will do it for me?

    I would hope they came with good instructions on how to do this. I would not do that to my car.

    By time I got the money it was sold. I wanted that bad. Oh well.
    There is no labeling to who makes it. I bought it used.

    Never mind guys! I bought White Faced Gauges in the FOR SALE SECTION and I got SCREWED. He told me they were for a 98-02 Camaro, but the box they came in says its for a 99-02. Then I open the box and they are for a 1997 Camaro. The F'n REDLINE on the tach is at 5,700 RPM.! WTF

    Sorry to hear about that man.

    Some people are just desperate to make a buck I guess, pretty pathetic.

    Hope you can get your $$ back.

    $110 without the TA bezel, here's a link.......

    Kit is designed to be used with Firebird lens/bezel. However, it may be ordered without bezel. If ordered without bezel (option below), your order price will be updated to reflect the lesser amount before your account is billed.
    Do I need the bezel? How do they go on without taking the needles off?

    I can't decide if I want white or silver. They don't have a pic of the silver. KageSS, can you put up a pic of yours?
