Very Nice mod R0942.! Cool

The above is for the removal of the cluster only, correct? Is it the perimeter of the bezel that's glued or the perimeter of the plastic shield to the cluster? Both?

I wanna do this! The PCM doesn't have any control over show mods!! Laughing

when you remove the clear shield you have to reglue it back to its original spot. I also glued the yellow bezel to the face of the black original plastic bezel after you remove the clear lens. I used masking tape to hold it tight so that I dodnt have to hold it forever.

What kind of glue did you use? Did they provide any or give suggestions?
Any instructions with it?

silversurfer320 -

Any photo examples? It would be much easier to dish out the coin after seeing some photos ...

Hi all. I am interested in these gauges also. If I am going to pull my dash apart, I might as well do everything at once.

Old Thread, but figured this would be a good place to throw up this picture.

US Speedo Daytona edition gauge faces (in yellow) matches Solar Yellow perfect. I painted the Needle centers black. And added White LEDs to the backlighting (but numbers show up Blue and Orange on the gauges). Also used a vinyl from a brake caliper to add a little touch where it says MOPAR, otherwise it was to blank there.

Word of advice, you need to press the needles on very gently, if you push them all the way on they WILL get stuck.

All in all it was an easy project, the time consuming part was getting all the needles back on, aligned perfect, and not sticking.

Total Price: <$200 including LEDs
Time: 2-3 Hours (more if you need to play with the needles)
Toughness: 3/10 Fairly straight forward
Tools: Phillips, T15, 1/4" Driver or small flathead (for bulbs), Needlenose (for pulling/placing bulbs), and a plastic pry (to remove dash pieces.
