ocntact the co or visit their website. they are all different. some are designed to go over the stock gauge faces. some require that the stock faces be removed. some are made to slip over the needles and some need the needles removed to install them. you need to know how those perticular faces are designed to be installed.

Take off the entire cluster, and put the gauges over the stock, watching out carefully for the needles/governor. To keep 'em in place, either use a double sided tape or carfully insert small, small screws, like I had professionally done.
It's hard to drive at the limit, but it's harder to know where the limits are.
