Booyah. Deleted the tachometer/markings, painted over all 'on' lights that come with swapping the STi cluster into a bugeye, and put a V1 remote display where the outside air temp gauge is.

So I decided to bite the bullet and crack open my 2004 STi cluster that has been malfunctioning for quite some time now.
- My tachometer was virtually useless
- I had a V1 remote mount and wanted to truly hide it away from the, ahem, authorities

Bite the bullet and crack the case..
First, I tackled the V1 remote mount..
double sided tape ftw
Now.. onto the tach..
It took a little bit of prying and some careful force to lift the needle away from the potometer 'pin', and after lifting the middle overlay out, you see the LEDs and marvel in their tiny square beauty
Then you smother them in tape, muhahaha..
After peeling off the tach needle and beginning to paint the inside tachometer overlay...
Who needs a tach?
