Indiglo gauges..

GodDAMN, my buddy and I spent like 5 hours, involving going to WalMart a couple times..and working in the WalMart parking lot LOL

Anyway, we got them in, and it's lighting up, etc. (We just stuck the wire into the slot..he was going to tap it, but since he was having a little trouble I told him that I heard people were just sticking it into the slot)

Well, my needles are sticking. We FINALLY got all the needles working, and then put it back together, but in the process of putting the cluster back into the dash and what not, it must have shifted some things around, so my tach and speedometer aren't working properly. i think my temp gauge is ok, and the gas gauge is just random..it works and doesn't work.

I don't have any time to mess with them today..I'm at work right now and I have class afterwards..

But does anyone have any suggestions? Should I just take it apart when I have a lot of time, and then re-tape the gauges?

These things are such b1tches..you need an even amount of pressure in so many different points.

I just used scotch double sided tape and made sure to put enough tape around where the needle holder could possibly hit, and of course everywhere else, but I made sure not to overlap any tape, because it might puff up too high

ok you know how your gauges have holes so you can slip them through the needles right? you just cut straight through the circle then put some glue or tape on the back and put it back on

so you just cut a little bit..or did you cut from the circle all the way OUT?

also..you do realize that i have my gauges already in, right? it's just that my needles are getting stuck because they are hitting the gauge...

do you think cutting it is going to help?

Are you still having the problem? My tach gauge is starting to stick, so I am going to pull that mother f'er out this weekend. I will let you know how it goes.
