Anybody install one of these...how's the fit and fiddle? I just ordered a panel through www.cobranda.com and a nice set of autometers. The thought of shelling out the big cashola for a JME or even Hanoline setup made me

I installed mine. It's a little tricky to fit it in. The panel is flat on the top of it, but the dash in the car has a curve to it, so you will have to fiddle with that. Also on the bottom of your intsrument opening are two tabs. I bent these flat, then rebent them up again so the flange is further back. I even took my snips and trimmed off around the upper left and right of the panel. You are going to think what in the name of holy $--- were they thinking of when they made this part up because it 's not a simple bolt on part. You can see some pictures on my site. Then you will have to hook up the three lights on the panel. You will have to use couple diodes to make the blinkers flash just that one lite. There is more to this, just let me know and I will help.

Thanks Mark!

Real nice ride.

I suspected a bit of head scratching and creativity would be involved. Seems like a simple concept. I ordered the 3 little lights too; $44 is about $40 more than they're worth, but hell...Im rich, right?

My old dad's a whiz on the electrical stuff... I guess I was expecting mostly, simple dash wire harness jumping. Thanks for the heads up and pix.

Sure beats idiot lights.
