well guys i got tired of looking at those "white face printed paper thingies" so i took them out. but i left the temp and fuel gauge in. gives it a nice contrast. i havent decided whether i like it or not yet though.

just thought i would let everyone know. if anyone is interested they can have them.

White guages?

Why do they make you sick? Is it not a good idea to go to white guages?

i bought a leather wrap at auto-zone. it was like $15, and if you want one, make sure you buy the large one. dont buy the one that says it is for imports or cars with-out airbags. at least i got a big one, i dont know about the rest of you.

It is one of those do it yourself jobs??? I always thought that they would look like shit. I would love to see a better picture of it. Was it hard to do?

Home Made Guages

I made some White Guages for my 6, well, me and Infared did. They look nice as crap, but I screwed them up when I was installing them, damn paper bends. Anyway, I am very pleased with the color.. It is worth the extra $1 to go to Kinko's and get it lazer printed. I'll have a pic up soon. I'm installing Xenon bulbs in the back of the Cluster at this moment. lata playas

Xenon Bulb

The bulb number for the guages are 194. there are 6 in total, 2 for the turn signals, one for brights, and three for lighting up the guages. The color of them is a bright pure white.. hope this helps

I'm down in Oz and no one here has even heard of Xenon cluster lights. Anyone who lives down here know where I might be able to get some?

Xenon bulbs

Most of the bulbs are available at your local speed shop. don;t know how much they would be. One thing about getting the guages is.. they have dark spots. but I've learned to live with them.. later

So not much light shows through the paper guages. That's a pity, the price we pay for vanity. :) Anyway, I've been through almost every single one of the speed shops around my area and all they have are normal bulbs. I need some really bright one so that the guages will be lighted up to some degree since the light has to come through the sides now that no light can come thought the guages themselves. I heard Xenon bulbs were the brightest and I can't seem to find them.

these are 1st gen gauges. they will in no way shape or form fit yours. i hate to send them to you, when someone with a first gen could use them.
