Instrument Cluster Project
I love the look of the white SS instrument clusters. I've been trying to find one but I really don't like the price of buying then swapping all my info to it. Well I was on eBay the other day and found these.

The overlays are real easy to install.
I have one in my Tacoma thats white with orange flames during the day and black with oranges flames at night when the lights are on.
Some tips to make the job go easier are:
Let the truck warm up to normal operating temperature then turn off before you start the job and carefully note the position of each gauge needle on a sheet of paper.
When reassembling do the same thing.
Be very careful handling the needles, I recommend using tweezers to handle them at least when putting them back on, to much movement will mess up the alignment and you'll have to pull them back off to correctly align them.
The needles are very easy to lose, I always use a plastic container or magnetic parts dish to hold small parts and screws when doing jobs like this so I dont lose stuff.
If you dont have a manual for the dash assembly take lots of pictures as your taking it apart, with digital cameras now a days it's not like you have to run out and get them developed.

Noting needle position isn't required, when your truck is off, the needles rest at zero, remove them at zero and put them back on at zero.

Thanks for the advice guys! I don't plan on taking the needles off so we'll see how that works. I figure it can't be any tougher than window tinting.

I dont think you can get the new gauge faces on without taking the needles off. Unless you cut the gauge faces and then that'll leave a line on them.
