Nice job!
Feel your pain. You're sure you're gonna break something when you have to yank on the trim pieces.
It's even worse when you have to run through the firewall for senders....still not bad.
Well worth the results.

things are not as they appear to be.........

That 340 Valiant in your sig is bad ass! The 340 was an awesome motor. Great job on the gauges.

Well thats why it was such a pain. Your steering wheel is on the wrong side. Jk man it looks good. Had to rip everything off when I used to have the JHP nav kit.

I feel your pain Greg! When I did mine, my wife came home from work at the moment of total destruction. The GXP was only a few months old at the time and had less then 2K on the clock. When she saw the dash completely disassembled did she scream! I calmed her down and a couple of hours later she couldn't believe how good it looked. Great job on the gauges. They look great!
