S7 Gauge help! <- has nothing to do w/ reseting the needles!

Alright guys... Im installing my new S7 gauges and need a little help and quick because I've got to be somewhere soon lol.

I've got everything put in nicely and it seems to be going smoothly... but where does everyone hook up the ground and power to these things? I think I found a spot for the ground... but I'm lost on where to hook up the power. Thanks!

Either tap into the power for your cigarette lighter...or run it through your firewall to your park light assembly as described in the Installs section of this site. Cigarette lighter is probably the quickest but going through the firewall is likely the most reliable way.

tap into the low beam's and get a self tapping screw and drill it into the floor under the carpet, with a ring terminal on the end of the negative connected to it thumbsup

I used the ground RIGHT behind the gauge cluster. There is a bolt behind everything once you get the whole thing out. thumbsup

for power, tap into any wire that has an illumination wire...that's hard to tell though, but you can check them.
