They're super easy. Just get a flat head and remove the lense cover and pull the old out and put the new in. Takes 2 mins if that lol

I've got the red dome also but mines really dim lol
And then I have my gauges red. Took some time but overall it's very easy. I wanna do my ac controls red to but I don't feel like taking everything apart and unhooking my stereo/.-

Very simple just pull out the cluster. Take off the plastic covering the gauges then be careful when pulling of the actual gauge sheet and needles so you don't break them. And make sure you take a picture of how your gauges were before you do it so you make sure every needle is in the same spot as before. Then when you pull off the gauges sheet be careful because some parts have glue. And then when you get it off then turn it over and scratch off the green film from the numbers. You kinda have to push on it. I used a knife when I scratched it off and I used pressure. And when you put it back on make sure you don't push the needles all the way down either because most of the time they will get stuck. And not move because the gauge sheet will no longer be flat against the cluster. And then put in the whatever color lights you'll be using into the back and plug it all back in and make sure it all works good then close it up

No you don't turn it on. Just leave it off and take a picture because if you don't put them in the right spot where they begin they will be off like my mph is a little off and I can't get it back to normal idk why-.- but just make sure they are at the same spot as they should be when you took them off. You could mark it with something if you wanted just make sure you can rub it off after. Once you get the needle on you can turn it and let go it should go back down to the same spot but some of them don't move back so be careful if you don't take a picture lol
