If you can think it, he can do it. Fr0m pictures to text.

Here is the thread. Takes about 3 weeks.

You could even have Smaug the dragon on it. It's pretty cool. I kept it simple. (of course it's mainly the speedo and tach that you'd customize as the 4 pack ones might look weird) Maybe not though.

Wish I'd known about this before they put the interior back in my car. I can do the 4 pack no problem. How hard is it to do the speedo?

Here are some samples of the kind of stuff that can be done. Of course ours are MUCH smaller.

I"m doing it tonight. I'll do the same write up pics for it. I haven't done it yet but it looks pretty easy.

R. I admire your courage and ability to jump in and do stuff... I'm not one to take trim stuff apart... It usually never goes back together right... Now, give me a 4" bolt that torques to 55000 ft/lbs, I'm in.. but this little plastic stuff... nah...

The door panels are the only thing I've felt funky about doing. Had to gring the fasteners off and use screws in the short holes. PITA

Dude, Camaro5 (and other forums) are a godsend. I couldn't have done much of what I have from suspension to the blower and all in between without this invaluable tool. AND the members who are so willing to help. I try to repay the community the best I can.

Funny how that works right??? Plastic stuff never goes back the way that steel will does it?

Thank you again Randy!

He must have missed this.

I'll do it. I'd be totally stoked to have been a part of Smaug like that.

T, If PQ is installing them... don't forget to bring a bag of Pretzels.... PQ needs consistent environmental conditions... Throw a bag of marshmellows under there and he'll break a toe or something...

I'd love those gauge faces, but I just can't quite justify $225 for them. I can get my new rear brake rotor for that...

However, I could Photoshop a set for myself and print them on my inkjet.
