I'm buying a set of reverse indiglos from a fellow board member and I'm curious as to the install procedure. Do I need to pull the needles? I installed the white face gauges in my Camaro and I never got the needles back on right. Does anybody have installation instructions?

Thanks!

10 steps to a more beautiful dash...

Its xtremely (pun intended:D ) simple. Heres a step by step:

1. Start your engine and let it warm up
2. Draw a diagram of your needles marking EXACTLY where they are.
3. Shut her down and pull the dash apart.
4. Pull the needles. My NR auto gauges came with a tool...Im sure they just pull right off.
5. Remove the old guages.
6. Put the new guages on. Remember to put the odometer button in first. I almost forgot mine!
7. With the dash still apart, start the truck and let it warm up again.
8. Reinstall the needles to the EXACT places that you diagramed them to. Turn the truck off.
9. Replace the dash.
10. Enjoy!!

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Thanks for the info. I'm extremely technically versed, and I've done gauges before, so what I'm mainly looking for is any tips on where screws and bolts might be hiding. Taking the dash apart can be a real pain. Thanks for the info on the needles. I would prefer not to pull them off because they simply DO NOT go back on exactly the same ever again.
