Cougar gauge swap

So today I went to the junk yard and found that the newer Cougar has similar gauges as the Focus. The back was grey and the needles were different. I liked the look of them. I got them brought them home and took it apart. The surround wont fit but the back is the same although there is a extra plug on the back from the Cougar, I guess it goes to the other lcd.

After taking it apart, I took the background off of the plastic and sanded the green off so that I can convert it to blue.

Then I put it all back together. I had to cover the hole where the other lcd was and pull out the bulb for the shift light. There also was not a hole for the trip reset so I had to cut one. Here's the finished product:

04 ZX3 RIP [Best Non-SVT FITF12][3/13 ROTM][7/14 ROTM][2014 ROTY][Best Engineered FF14]
01 SE V8 Estate [Organizers Choice FF15][2nd Place MK1 Class FF16]
02 SE SVT Wannabe
02 SVT Future Project
