really ppl... they are not hard to put in. I have done it for yrs. Even a newbie can do it. when needle gets stuck that means that the installer didnt get the face fully mounted down. If it is that means they took off the needles and pushed it TOO hard back on. That means u just have to pull out the needle a bit. PPl post all the time taking off the needle is REALLY not recomended. Even the manual says that. I admit, I have broken that rule a few times. There IS a trick to that and if ya wanna know ill post it. Just too lazy to type it all down now. Best way to do it is just to slide it on. The cover holes for the indiglos are larger than the circle of the needle. That makes sliding it on EZer. Im talkin from experience doing this to a CRV, Civic (SI included), accord, camery, mustang and the Xterra. If n e one needs help or advice. Feel free to send me a email CPLCHEN@aol.com. Ill be more than happy to help. Im selling my current indiglos for some reverse ones that are out now. Im getting them this friday :oP. So ill take step by step pics on putting them on and ill post it.

Because there's a big chance it might affect the accuracy of your speedometer (or/and tachometer) if you didn't put it back correctly. If you do take it out though, you can always get a shop to recalibrate it.

Has anyone received their reverse indiglo gauges from the buy-in? It has been four weeks. I got a statement, but no product yet. I've written to them, but I wanted to see if anyone here has heard.

I just got finished installing a set of Indiglos in my '00. Removing the dash and gauge pod wasn't hard at all - see asianusmc's great installation photos in this forum. The hard part was trying to fit the faces over the needles and needle stops, then making sure they would work. It's not something I would recommend for an amateur and you really have to work to get the faces down flat and the needles operating freely. On my 2000 I found that the connector tabs for the wires were keeping the faces from laying flat and I had to remove some of the white plastic housing to eliminate this problem. Also the faces had to be flexed a considerable amount to get them over the needles - especially the speedo and tach because they have that little tail piece you have to clear - and seemed to bind a bit at the hubs even after the screws were reinstalled. You can pry the needles up slightly at the centers to gain a bit more clearance (carefully!) It just takes a bit of trial-and-error to get it right. I also did not care for the sort of unfinished look of the 6 color control pad, so I fabbed a little housing out of styrene and mounted it to the top of my steering column cover with the flat cable running down behind and practically invisible. I would have to take issue with asianusmc and say that the install is not quite as easy as he represented. I would also recommend checking the gauges carefully by hooking them up and testing them (I drove around, revved the engine, got the temp up, got up on the interstate, filled my gas tank) before you put everything back together the final time.

After not getting an email response, I called SR Motorsports. They changed the desgin without asking anyone, got complaints, and are changing it back. It will be another few weeks before these are shipped. I not very happy with them not notifying anyone, but what am I going to do, they already have my money. frown

Does anyone have pictures and/or a "how-to" to remove the dash trim around the gauge cluster???

I'm talking about a 2002 X.

Thanks.

DNAGRL,

Do you know what the changes were that people didn't like? I have a feeling that the ones they made first were reverse indiglo around the outside where all the numbers are, but with the center of each gauge being in regular indiglo (the old style glow-in-the-dark looking stuff). I've seen that design and I sure hope they don't come like this for our trucks.

I really hope the ones sent out to us will only have the red/blue "reverse indiglo" lighting scheme. I don't care for the looks of other style.

Rockout,

You can see the changes on their Model Development page . They are refered to as the "halo reverse" design. They made this style for the Camaro IROC without asking the people who bought-in to the original design and the customers complained. They then stopped the tooling of the Frontier/Xterra gauge and changed it back to the original reverse style as well. They are now taking buy-ins for both styles.

eBay's had those for awhile now, and for the Xterra. This is for the reverse glo, not the indiglo laugh .

Mike,

If you notice, the ebay auction is listed by srmotorsports, that stands for Street Racer Motorsports, the same people we are doing the by-in through. They often list their all ready produced gauges for cheaper on ebay.

Since it has been a couple of weeks, I called SR Motorsports. The gauges are in and are being shipped out! It's been a long month and a half. I hope they fit well. I'll post pictures if I succeed at doing this myself on my 2003.

I to have fallen to the "reverse" style gauges from my old Acura. I called s/r motorsports to see what exactly the deal was with them since the post on this site seemed to be a little confusing at times of what is being done. They do have the "reverse" ; "halo" ; and "indiglo" styles all in stock. What can I say I purchased the "reverse" syle. If anybody is interested in the before and after photos let me know and I will post some pictures.
