SuperFlea Glad you like them. It's actually very easy to remove the needles and to install them as well.
Good luck bro!

tkheaven Man, they do look sweet. I would have loved to get me some clear needles for the gauge. Unfortunately I've become very pet with removing those gauge needles; one of the guys at an AAuto who "knew" how to change them only ended up with me needing to get a new cluster off eBay. The readings were all off. SO..got a new one, changed the face myself w/o removing needles, made the odometer screen red (I wanted it blue but that light green can't come off, I used red tail light tape instead). When I added the blue, it looked more like teal...bleacckh Now I gotta figure out why the face isn't lighting when I try to hook it up to the parking lights.
I still want to change the colors on the other switches (window, HVAC, etc.). Looks like a friggin xmas tree. Thankfully three are plenty of instructions on that.

Actually no, these are very very easy to see, the face plate is silver with the blue letters and the needles are whit, so it's very easy! I think it looks even better!

It's very simple. The hardest part was calibrating the needles, but even that was simple. I used a how to on here for that! (with the LCD screen)

I'd say, go for it!
