What color is the wire under the hood that goes to the dash lights or is there a better way to do that part?

If you mean how to connect the wire for the gauge light, just take out the interior light fuse and tap into the fuse block. That's the easiest way because it doesn't take even a minute this way, rather than tracing wires and splicing.

Tap into the fuse block... I don't know how to do that. Could you give me a rundown on that please. Sorry for my incompetence with electrical stuff.

find the fuse that protects the dash lights or any fuse that has power with the key on and pull it then take the wire for the tach light and strip it and push it and the fuse back in together wont hurt a thing.
