Dimmer mod for aftermarket gauge

Who knows how to get an aftermarket gauge to dim with the car's factory dimmer? Any links would be very helpful to my last stretch of mod-ing my gauges. I already have all the lights the right colors and all so I am not looking for installation, I am looking for wiring diagrams or pics and such. Thanks to those who have information!

I actually have mine wired in to the factory lights switch. Didn't take it that far but I'll look into it tomorrow when I wire up the Ignited starter button to my kill switch and hard wire my Radar detector to the car as well. Really you just need to get out a volt ohm meter and trial and error it but I'll see if I can give you some wire colors.
