Saleen gauge
3 Attachment(s)
Digging through the closet I came across this.

I honestly had NO idea that I even had it. Now I'm trying to decide if I should install and if it'll even fit/work. Also does anyone have a pic of what it looks like illuminated(I can't seem to find one)? I'm planning on changing the cluster lights to red soon, if I install this will the light still come through red?

I can post mine tonight if no one else chimes in before then.

The Saleen gauges have a relay box on the back that plugs directly into those dials which illuminates them. Without that, they won't light up and it might be even too thick to let your regular gauge lights to illuminate through.

Here's a pic of the backlit gauges taken from my phone.

Does it hook up to the factory gauge, or do I just need to wire it up to a switched source?

Looks great.

It uses a different wiring setup for the backlit. If you look at the second picture you posted, that ribbon cable at the bottom cannot plug into your existing wiring.

I know exactly how to connect wires to them, it's the same plug as the cathode that went out for my Halos. If I do that and splice into the factory wiring will it work? Or is there a "special" connettor needed ni line somewhere?

probably needs a power invertor to work? I've seen Tom's gauges in person and they look way better than what that pics shows lol

Alright, Thanks. I'll be getting an inverter.
