    white gauge overlays

    i really want to get some white overlays for my gauge cluster. i love the macewen ones and know a lot of people have them, but i cant justify spending like $100 for a bunch of stickers. recently i came across ones that look almost identical to the macewens but are 1/4 of the price. they're from a company called duranged designs (aka whitefacegauges.net). i was wondering if anyone has these and if so how did you like them? i uploaded 2 pictures of them below. they look pretty good to me.

    Actually the the name of the site is whitegauges.net. I'm thinking of getting some myself. I still havent figured out why the firebird one is $45 while the camaro one is only $25.
    Both are still great prices though.

    Should be a one piece overlay.

    That might be why this one is cheaper...looks like a couple small overlays.

    yea those look good too, but not worth the extra $65 to me. if i was gonna spend $90, i'd just spend an extra $10 and go with the macewen ones. they're the best out there. i was just trying to figure out if anyone had personally used the $25 ones. if not, i guess i'll be the guinnea pig and order them next week and try them out.

    I purchase mine form e-bay three years ago for $20+shipping. They have the blue/green glow and were easy to install with the hardest part having to splice into an exsting power wire.

    do you have to take the needles off? is it an easy mod? sorry for the stupid question, i've heard bad stories about overlays.

    GUAGE INSTALLIATION FOR 1 PC KIT
    1 unbolt bottom of l dash 2-bolts
    2 remove 2 more bolts 7mm socket holding the uper half
    3 disconect the hatch button
    4 upper dash panel is held on by clips so pull very gently
    5 un bolt rest of bolts holding lens and cluster(4bolts, 7mm)
    6 pull out the whole cluster as whole. its like a video game cartigrige
    7 seperate the lens so you just have the cluster
    8 remove oem guage face and stick on new one with the tape on backing and with included tool pry up all the needles.
    (DRAW A PIC OF YOUR NEEDLES BEFORE REMOVAL WHEN CAR IS OFF AND WHEN CAR IS RUNNING, so you know where to place them back)
    8 put everything back on in reverse order.

    TIPS
    clean hands and cery careful w needles bc gm doesnt just sell the needles so if you break one you have to buy new cluster.

    INSTALLATION ON 3PC KIT
    same as 1pc but instaed of pulling off the old face leave it on including the needles and just stick them on top of them.
    for each sticker leave needls on put point them up and place sticker threw them
