This blog is an installation for the Carbon Driven overlay made out of real carbon fiber. It is available in both silver and black carbon. The color are hyperlinks, so be sure to click on them.
- First thing is first, you will have to remove the gauge cluster from the dash.
- Once that is removed, you will need to separate the bezel from the cluster.
- The next thing is a bit harder, because you will need to separate the plastic lens from the bezel. If you have a Dremel, you will be able to cut where the plastic was glued and it will come off. Or if you are careful and patient enough, you can pry it open with a flat head screw driver. It will crack the plastic if you’re not careful enough, so watch out. DO NOT HEAT IT UP. It will melt. When you put the lens back on, you can add some silicone to the edges and glue it back, or you can just slap it on like I did. It does not move, and you cannot tell that it isn’t glued on.
- The overlay comes with adhesive. You will need to peel off the plastic and apply directly to the bezel. Make sure that the surface is cleaned. You can apply and remove, but if you do, the adhesive might wear out.
- Since the cluster was out, I took the opportunity to swap out the cluster lights with LED’s. I bought a pack of 10 off of Ebay for a couple of bucks. To this day, they still work with no issues. You will need size 194 bulbs. You can use any color, I used blue.
