yeh i got about the same price for the install. I agree it is cheaper to do it yourself, but im afraid of messing something up with the wiring. If anybody lives in jersey and wants to make a quick 50 bucks let me know

It really isn't that hard. Before I installed my gauges I had not done anything custom to any car and I was able to do it fine

how do i take off the interior panels so i can reach that rubber bushing?? sorry if it's confusing...i don't kno how else to put it...

i guess in other words, how do i reach the rubber bushing from the inside of my car??

rubber bushing?
what?
the firewall?

when installing and wiring...you can take off the lower part of the dash...that's the part by your legs...you will see the bolts holding it on.

120? eek

Even if you don't want to do it yourself, shop around - you can find a much better price than that! I didn't want to bother, so I had some gauges installed for 30 or 40 bucks (it was so long ago, I can't remember which).

That is a ripoff!

please do NOT install your neons and your gauges and whatever else, ALL TO YOUR CIG lighter... when they are all turned on and you press the cig lighter button, since there is no fuse between these connections, you will burn out one of your expensive toys and it will cost much more time and money to replace it... when all this could be avoided by just wireing your neons to your battery, your gauge overlays to your lighting and whatever toys you have installed, as instructed by those install guides.

the ONLY people who have complained about their gauges "smoking" right after installation, were those who have had neons and other toys all hooked up to the cig lighter wave

Do things correctly the first time and money from having to fix the problems later thumbsup

I agree, you should not put more than one electrical connection to the cig lighter. I connected my indiglos to my cig lighter light (green wire). I have no plans on connecting anything else to it so I'm fine.

Yea man seriously do them yourself. Isaac's install post will save you substantial time and you will not have any headaches. The only thing I found out that helps is whenever you try to slide them on bend the overlays length ways. Notice I said bend do not crease them. It will help you get them to slide on no problem and you won't have to worry about breaking your tach or spedo needles. thumbsup

it is easier than you think.
GND to body metal part (under steering wheel)
12V to accessory power (fuse or back side of cigarette lighter)

you don't always have to go to the cig lighter...
the fuses work fine...
and if you test out misc wires underneath the dash, you can find one for power or that has illumination power to it when the lights are turned on.
