Did you add glue so that the gauges would lay flat?

Not bad, not bad at all. Brothers seems to have some of the best prices on stuff. Just got a MM quadrant shipped for less than the MM site charges before shipping. With that said, those don't look 100% stock if that is the look one is going for but they do look pretty good.

Easy to install? Yes very. A pain in the *** when the needle base rubs and you have to take it all apart again? Yes very. Do it! Make shire you use loctite super glue because its strong yet allows you to peel it off I you mess up Long as you don use to much. Make shire you glue the part closest to the needle base flat and flush over the original cluster. Good luck. Here's mine

Here's a MAN'S cluster.



Like I said in an earlier post they're expensive but this is the best setup you can possibly put in your car. I would use Speedhut gauges personally but that's mainly for looks on my part.

Pushing $800 which is actually a good price when you consider how much 6 autometer gauges cost with the speedo/tach. Plus these things are pre-wired with instructions and retain the blinkers, high beams and a check engine light.

It is when you are racing at the strip or the road course and you need accurate information.

Mine were only $30 IIRC. Get mistaken for a Cobra swapped cluster all the time.
