REAL Carbon Fiber Gauge Bezel - Pics!

I just installed another christmas present today. Only $23.70 + shipping from procarparts.com. In my haste to get it installed, I forgot to take a close-up of the carbon fiber weave, but it is really high quality. I was pretty impressed - especially for the price.

Install was simple, I referred mainly to the Gauge overlay install instructions from the installs section of this site (Thanks to Steven, also, for answering my questions wave).

Step #1: Unscrew two screws indicated by the green arrows.

Step #2: Unscrew three more screws holding the gauge cluster in place.

Step #3: Gently pull the cluster toward you and you will see six plastic tabs which you will need to depress to remove the clear plastic gauge cover. You do NOT need to unplug the back of the gauge cluster or go about disassembling it any further.

Step #4: Once you have the cover off, remove the adhesive backing on your gauge bezel and carefully position it into place. Make sure to go over it gently with a cloth to ensure proper adhesion and to remove any fingerprints you may have left.

Finally, put it all back together in reverse order (this is self-explanatory if you've gone this far). The entire install took me 15-20 mins. and I'm slow grin

Below is a picture of the finished product:
