    Installing gauge face help

    I want to go with the indiglo faces but I have not found a thread that tells you the best way to get the faces past the needles. Can you pull them of with a removal tool or what. I have seen people talking about tweaking the needles off center and so forth bu no real way to do it, and is the gas gauge the only one that re-centers after a fuel up. What are peoples experiance. I put them in my Taurus sho a while back and it did not require removal of needles cause there were 3 seperate pieces and no double needle in the same face as with the temp/gas one we have.

    i just put them in my car you dont have to remove the needles. if you do youll have big problems . and just lay the new ones over the old ones and when you get the gage cluster out there will be 3 wire connecters the 1 on the right is the wires you what to hook into the purele is your power and the black is your ground. any more info you need please ask me .

    How did you get the fuel/temp needles thru the face, did you point them both straight up? are they able to be pointed past the gauge limit?
