    Yes the printed circut is seperate from everything. You just take the clips off the guages and it comes off. WHatever you do DON"T cut it thinking you can cut off the parts that you aren't using any more, I found that out the hard way. Soon I hope to get a 5" monster tach and speedo to finish off the dash. Thanks for all the positive replies guys!!!!!

    Well when you reach the point where you have taken out all the gauges you wont need the board at all. I was wondering if you cut it or not to install the others. Thanx for the info cuz I woulda messed that up! LOL!

    Looks Great Ben! I really like the auto meter guages. Just wondering if you have any of the stock guages? I could use the alt guage if you still have it and it works

    looks good, im doing the same thing right now, its amazing how much stronger the truck is with the rear floor in. i was driving around in a swiss cheese truck. im also doing the front floor pans and rockers.

    yea brian, the lower two are water temp in the factory location, and tranny temp in the spot where the clock would be, or in my case, where there was nothing. Thanks a lot guys!!!!! Keep them coming.
