You need to remove the green film from the gauges for anything worth it

Good question... I still have my film on I'm actually going to the junk yard tomorrow to take apart a gauge cluster and see the easiest way to remove the film. I'll let you know!

Ya the ugliest green they could have chosen for the gauge. But superbrighleds is a good website and they know what they are doing just input your car type and everything is right there

First off the dash from my 03' mustang has green film, I pulled it out of a 99' and it was blue film. While the boards are different all the connections are the same do you can swap your boards out, now the film in general is the same EXCEPT my 03' has a light for "Check Fuel Cap" and the 99' does not. So I grabbed the film needles and motor for needles part of the board from the junk yard for $20. This is so I don't need to touch the needles at all to avoid screwing them up. More coming soon. Working on it now. Any questions?

The under dash are LEDs you can buy a 5 meter role from amazon for $19 and they are hooked up to the fuse box and grounded and get a switch it's easy. The bulbs I have for my gauges are from Superbrightleds.com
