Get one they are cheap lol. If not use splice connectors. I'm about to instal mine also next week along with sequential tail light harness, mach 1 chin and decklid panel. Should be a breeze. I'm defiantly going to need to glue down the silver bezel rings though. Don't want them popping off on me.

I installed reverse glow gauges in mine twice and ended up removing them both times. Reasons were the same. The wires that are used in these kits are just about fishing line thin. Both times I installed them I had a hell of a time getting the splices to hold the tiny wires. And I tore the wires off the switch several times and had to solder it back on. I would eventually get it all working and then they would eventually start to cutout and flash. I could just never get a great connection in mine
So some advice... work carefully and slowly. The wires are very prone to coming off their connections. Wiring sucks

I am also having that problem. The needles move but the numbers like temp, mph, and rpm are off.

Not worth getting. I had them on my old gt and the needles would stick randomly.

Glue the gauge faces down in the corners. A dab will do. And from what I noticed red line is a bit higher on these gauges. If you got them from American muscle they are. I've had no problems and did them yesterday but I haven't been driving the car either.

Haha hell no super glue bud or gorilla glue not elmers. Something clear and strong and don't put it on the black part put it on the white part on back of the gauge face or it might show while on. If the sticking became a constant problem you could get super small self taping screws and place them accordingly. That would definatly seal the deal but would show.

I have found in my experience with those not only in mustang but other cars even when u do everything perfect over time they begin to flash and some don't even light after a while and as far as your other needles working they are probably to close to the face so is rubbing and not moving just carefully pull the needle I would say with a pick or a little flat head screw driver and with that it should move out and free it up and make it operational again and u can pull on the needles on these cars to adjust them done it plenty of times just careful don't pull too hard to brake it you'll notice when u got it hope it helps
