    Deal or dud??
    Just wondering if anyone has bought these and if they are any good?!
    I guess they stick to original gauges. Found them on ebay.

    One of the cheapest mods out there is to take off the clear dash bezel, then the black piece underneath it (it is light blue on the back). Paint the light blue with some "chrome" colored paint. While you're in there, change the guage lamps. Put it all back together, and then marvel at how bright your guages appear.
