I might be wrong but I talked to someone about installing my guages this morning, supposily they just fit right over it, you should be able to lay it over and if it looks good then out them in place.. know what i mean?

You're right, they just lay over your OEM's nothing to remove.

How you would get the gauge face on if you don't remove the needles? Unless we are talking about something entirely different you have to take the needles off to put the gauge face on. There are instructions on how to, you need to make sure it's done correctly so your gauge needles register correctly.

When I said nothing to remove I meant the OEM gauge face itself

You can get them on without removing the needles, just gotta be patient. Which was really hard for me.

Unless I am mistaken, I believe the Speed Hut gauges have 3M adhesive that attaches them to the OEM gauge face which will require removing the needles.

But, I may be wrong.
