    Guage dimmer control?

    Ok, I just installed 3 Autometer Cobalt guages. I know that it's possible to tie into the dimming power wire going to the CD player, but would it be possible to hook up a seperate dimmer switch to control the guages independently? I'm hoping something from Radio Shack would do the trick, but i'm not sure...

    If you guys give me a quick response, I'll post pictures of my awesome relocated clock setup

    You could buy a potentiometer from Radio Shack for about $2. Personally I put a 100kOhm resistor on my Cobalt gauge because it was just too bright but I don't need to adjust it.
