Installed a white gauge decal kit! Soooo much nicer than the black gauges it had!

I got it off eBay. Seller: customgauges.
Really good to deal with. I would buy from them again.

This is a pic off the eBay ad at night. It looks the same. You can kind of tell that there is an overlay but if you line up the lines good then it's not too bad

No problem man. My advice. Use a drop of dish soap in a bit of water and make the surface of the cluster wet where you are sticking the decals. It's next to impossible to stretch the decal over the needle unless it can slide without sticking to the face. Then you just squeegee the water out after you've placed the decal on. A flashlight in behind the face of the gauge works well to help line it up too .

Took the jeep apart to change out a bad heater core. Took it apart last night and put it back together today. Cleaned the carpet too since I had everything out.



On another note... is anyone using leds in the factory headlights. If so, what small leds did you use? I have some but I can't get the blinker and the running light to work. It's either one or the other. It doesn't change over. Thanks.

Here are the pics I said id post.
The pics dont do it justice, its much brighter and I am very pleased, you can see on the hvac that the temp control lights arent working, the bases are broken. So I have to replace them. Ill hit a junkyard and scoop them up. What bulbs are in the evic? And can you change out the window and lock button lights?

I am on my phone right now, but when I get back to a computer I will upload. What you said at he end is exatly what I was thinking. Maybe buy junk doors, strip them down, paint thr jambs myslef to match, install doors with my interior back on, sell extra parts to recoop money, then take to body shop for rear quarter body work and paint on whole driver's side (maybe whole jeep).

Are all bulbs lit when parking lights are on?
