w00t, white face gauges

I bought the cheapo kit off ebay, 25 bucks shipped. Install was a cinch, didn't even have to take off the needles lol. They work pretty well, need a little modification, total installation took about 45 minutes. Pics are to follow.

and sorry, they were 26.95 shipped. Only problem with them is the wires to give them power don't connect to your factory system..I plan on fixing this however by making my own sytem that cuts them on when power to the lights is cut on and off when power to the lights is off. Just gotta get off my lazy butt and do it though.

Re: w00t, white face gauges

Yeh...they're bright, I'm working on a dimmer system to work in conjuction with the factory dimmer system as well as a system to cut them on and off that way. Like I say...they were only 26 bucks..I can put up with little things.

Re: w00t, white face gauges

Haha those are the same ones I got. Right off ebay. Good deal if you ask me.

Did all the warning lights line up for yours though? I had to trim mine off the factory gauges and color them in with marker!! :pnoid:

Re: w00t, white face gauges

I've got the same ones. Lining up the warning lights was a real *****, but after that, I was happy. After 2ish years, they still work like a charm, and are way better looking and easier on the eyes than the stock ones.

welcome to the club!

Re: w00t, white face gauges

umm, if you have the 12v+ connected to i believe, the thick *** brown wire, and the transformer ON all the time, it should turn on and off with the headlights/running lights. thats how my buddies 95 5.0 is wired. as far as dimmer switch function, im clueless. supposedly on the dsm, if i wired the 12v+ into the dimmer switch, it should have dimmed like the regular lights, but that wasnt the case when i tried it, it didnt even light up(though i had it wired the same as another guys and his worked).

i really dont like any gauges for stangs. i dont want to go reverse glow, i dont like the el glow svt/cobra gauges. i like the stock green, sad to say. though im wondering if i can swap out the bulbs for different colored ones, or hook up my own LED's in there and clear out the green layering(if there is such a thing). im sick of overlays. cheapie way of doing things. if theyre bent during shipping, theyre like that permanent, most times theyll need trimming, and sometimes they get caught up in the needles(as in, my fuel gauge could never go under 1/4 cause it got caught on the face)

Re: w00t, white face gauges

No day pics yet, and I'm not gonna go into explaining how I have to wire these things up to make them work correctly. Let's just say I have two rocket scientists in training, an electrical engineer and two computer engineers working on a design to make this work with my factory system. O yeh, and I'm being a good manager and telling them what I want done and that won't work.

Re: w00t, white face gauges

theyre e.l. reverse glow overlays.

indiglo is where the whole face is one solid color(ie green or blue), like the SVT's use.

Re: w00t, white face gauges

If you have a V6 the 150 speedo won't work first off. Secondly, they are sitting in the bottom of a dump somewhere, the wires kept shorting out and the gauge kept making my needles stick and the white part of the material was separating from the backing. Also, the lights are wayyy too bright for me at night, I had to cut them off to see the road.
Mine did not come with a dimmer, just an on/off button.

Note to self though, you get what you pay for.

This has just started happeneing on mine. Its getting annoting. My speedo always sticks at 35 or else at 115.

Im going to have to take the damn thing apart and see if I can figure out a way to tighten that bubble. Maybe a hairdryer will do. we will see.
