    Is that yours or did you grab that pick from blackcat customs?

    I heard the material used for those those faces wasnt good and they had problems with them peeling/flaking off.

    It's good, man. Thanks. No complaints here.

    I'll give you a shout when/if I head down that way. Atco's usually my last resort since there's no getting around that water box. lol I'll let you know, though.

    Nah, I'm not making it since Frank can't go. Just decided to stay at work after I spoke to him. Too much traffic by the time I get home to think about going. Maybe on a weekend or something I'll head there.

    looks real nice
    I think i would have left the temp and fuel black at first just to see how it looked
    does anyone know the diameter of the MPH and RPM gauges (the white part)

    I left the white piece that covers the gear indicators. I had mine sent back and coated in gloss because I wasn't happy with how they looked. To dull. Overall for less than 40 bucks total it was a nice compliment to the 3 autometer phantoms with the black interior. Went orange on the needles to match all the phantoms

    The white faces look awesome. The Orange needles are okay, but I prefer the white/clear needles. One thing I can't stand about these gauges are the warning lights across the bottom. They look ridiculous in my opinion. I like the ones Lincboy posted.

    I love those other ones posted by lincolnboy. I wasnt planning on white face gauges but with that set I may do it.

    Went with orange because it matches all the autometer phantoms I have. White face, black lettering, orange needles. Plus I don't like a white needle on a white face.

    Laser, that is a nice looking set but I've heard stories of the paper isn't good quality and problems how it's flaking, not sure how True but these were 33 bucks vs 109 + ship for the others

    my needles are red, i have to install my trans temp gauge so it matches the other gauge, i bought gauges from gloshift, they are fluid filled with led they look so awesome at night. i put led's inside my cluster, looks like :q:q:q:q, they are blue, but i bought hyper white led's i dont like them, they look awesome if the rest of my lights in the dash werent green, but they dont match so they are coming back out.
