Explain this to me......

i bought this

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...&ed=1079032910


it says this...



These EL NITE REVERSE GLOW gauges are designed to lie on top of the factory gauge panels without removal of factory needles and does not create heat. Installed in minutes by professional, these gauges is simply the best solution for your otherwise plain “a.k.a stock” looking interior.

whats does this part mean...

designed to lie on top of the factory gauge panels without removal of factory needles

is this a regular guage cluster or not.....

Gauges

It means you slip that you can slip that gauge face onto your cluster without removing your needles or the stock overlay. It is not a gauge cluster.

Some overlays require the removal of the needles to get it on. With this one you can just line the needles up and slip it over. The set should come with instructions. There are also tons of "How-Tos" on this installation. The only hard parts are slipping it on with the needles on and picking a fuse to wire up to.

I believe the Speedhut guages also just slip on over the needles.

Nope. They go on top, and are held in place by double-sided tape. Like all gauge overlays.
