New Face Gauges on my 96

I recently bought the White Face Reverse Glow Gauge Insert (94-98 V6) from American Muscle and installed them the other day.

Taking off the dash and getting the gage cluster out wasnt so hard but when it came to putting the new gauge face on it started to get difficult.

They come in 3 different parts (Main, left side, right side) which was nice. However the holes that you use to put them over the needles were too small and took some time to get them to fit right.

Another thing we had a problem with was the wiring the left and right side wires go straight down which is good but the main gauges wire comes out right into the left side gauges so you have to send it up through the creese and it leaves the temp gauge up a little, its not very noticeable but id rather it be flat.

Also the instructions could have been a little easier to follow and with better pictures.

However once you get them on and everything right they look GREAT!

thanks Dan! the only real problem with the instructions was that the picture of the gauges the wire for the main gauges came out the top which was different than what the gauges are lol everything else was good tho =)

so far iv bought everything from AM and i have plans to buy more things in the future =)

Wow, I had always seen these but they never appealed to me in the daytime... but once you turn on the lights it looks REALLY good! I hope they come out with something for the 2013's... I find the retro-style gauge a little hard to read. They're stretched too vertically..

But nice job! it looks awesome!
