I just wrapped up the install of my gauges and they work!
Happy Happy! Ofer's special prepared PnP cable fit great and everything hooked up like it was meant to be there.
Luckily, I read other threads about removing the power outlet and traction control switch, so I didn't damage them a bit. You have to remove the metal sleeve first from inside the power outlet, then the plastic liner and flap easily unsnap. I only needed a small thin flat-tip screwdriver for the entire install.
First pic is the stripped original shift panel and the parts reinstalled on the new one.
The second is Gen5DIY's super-duper PnP harness. I was able to install the cable in the body harness with instructions here: http://http://www.gen5diy.com/image/...ge harness.pdf
The rest of the photos are just of the completed console. Any questions, ask away!
