s7 gauges

Hey everyone, i have some s7 gauges coming in the mail, i was wondering if you can put on the plastic rings after puting on the overlay? Also can you do all of this without removing the needles?? My main thing is i dont want ot removie the needles and have to recalabrate. If i put the plastic rings on before can i still slip it over the needles??? Thanks everyone for oyur help.

-Sorry for bad typing wink

Oh also, i am going to put a 6" cold cathode behind the AC gauges, where can i tap into the power so it comes on whne the lights come on??? I was also goign to use another tap to power the S7 gauges so they ocme on whenlights come on, so i need i guess 2 fueses or wires to tap into. I dont want to go outside, stay all inside the firewall. Thanks for all your help.

-Dan

Recalibrating is no bid deal, just plug in the gagues with the clear part off and the car on, and put the needles on just below zero.

thanks isaac, i deff searched and did not find the S7 one. i found some others but they all talked aobut using exterrior power. I dont want to take off hte needs to calibrate them and saw that thread. as for the lighting, i saw that thread but it wil be one whenever the car tunrs on. I wanted it ot tunr on when the ligths go on. Now i know there is a fuse to tap into tat i think works for rear liogths, but can i tap 2 things into 1 fuse? such as the ac light and the s7 gauges?

if you can tap both those htings it to that fuse they tlaked aobut, then all is peachy, but i didnt know if you coudl do that. If not i guess i coudl jsut use 1 tap and the splice the wires from the ac light to the s7 gauges
