Speedhut Custom Gauge installed

Just installed the speedhut custom gauges...wow....there are real nice and worth the $45.00. White during the day and blue at night. Hopefully the picture comes through.

Cool. Looks nice. Like the blue LED's.

So. Was the install of the gauge pretty easy ?

Did they come with instructions ?

Did you get the stock or the upgraded inverter ?

The speedhut gauges were pretty easy to install....they came with "general" instructions...pretty much the same for must cars. I purchased the stock inverter. It works great!

I can post a daytime pic later today of the gauges.
(sorry....a little too dark out to get a good pic...it will be here tomorrow)

I cannot take any credit for coming up with this mod....it was posted here in Interior Mods - Dash Board Lights. You can check it out and even order the correct LED's to make the change.
I haven't taken the MP3 radio apart yet....its still green....yuck. That might be a challenge!!!!

Buyer's Remorse!

Love the instrument cluster mod. Looks great! BUT has me kicking myself, LOL...

You see, I opted for the only car on the lot with cloth heated seats, AND I love them. However, that meant I had to get a ZTS without the the sport package because none of the cars that day had both and I HAD to have a car since the old Dodge blew up. So I have a great ZTS Sans wing, fog lights, and Tachometer. What really gets me is it's a stick and no TACH! Never even thought about it until I drove it off the lot and said to myself, "Hey, where is the tach?" So, now I really want a tach.

After seeing your mod I am gonna go get me the whole cluster and modify one.

Just GOTTA have it...

Glenn

ZTS with a zetec and no tach? I thought a zetec always had a tach? Cant you get the speedhut no tach? Lots of no-tach cars out there.
