how to install glow gauges?

Im thinking about installing these gauges, has any one installed guages that also require wiring to light up at night? How hard is it on a scale of 1-5? I doubt it will be much of a problem but I want to find as much information as I can before I buy any guages.

these are the ones I was looking at to buy because they don't require you to remove the needle and I like the look of them, just intimidated by the wiring: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/99-20...02098494QQrdZ1

thanks in advance..

Well if you ever want to adjust the brightness or color of your gauges, if they allow it, you'll want the switch accessible.

I wired mine into my parking lights.

Re: how to install glow gauges?

back when I did that in the 6er I mounted that switch in the dash bezel around the gauges (next to the headlight switch)
