I just installed some crome rings in my dash that go around all the gauges. Let me tell it wasn't as easy as I thought but they look really cool.

Here are what they look like. Good luck and take your time if you are going to install them. You have to have epoxy glue and zip ties which do not come with the order. I would also suggest wearing rubber gloves while installing them because you will get finger prints on the clear front cover.

Here is the web site. I actually paid more. 59.95. But I was in a hurry to get them so I just bought them right away without shopping. If you go on the web site it will show a better picture and they have a lot more cool stuff.

I've got silver gauge rings coming from Bimmian.com as I write, $40. Bimmian has a good instruction page for this install, Dex did you use this? What kind of epoxy did you use? they spec 5min epoxy, I'm assuming so you can clean up any glue before it dries. Did the cluster come out as easily as it looks? Lastly, I'm I opening a large can of worms here?

Also, forgot, Bimmian has chrome rings that snap in, no glue required, the colored and silver ones need the glue. $60

I bought the epoxy glue from Auto Zone. Like the instructions say, only spread a very thin line and be ready to clean up quickly. The adhesive that comes on the back of the rings spread out of the ring so you have to tuck them under using a toothpick or something else small.

Just take your time and make sure that you clean the plexy glass from all your fingerprints and such.

Lastly, when you put back together your cluster, make sure that the two buttons which reset your mileage and set your clock is positioned right and push in. I didn't have them right and when I got the cluster back in the dash I had to take it back out to align them.

Once you have it out working on it you will know what I mean.

Like I said just take your time.

Good luck,

Dex
