          Hey Kidafa,

          First i drew a picture on paper of the dash i so could remember the correct order they came out, The pic i drew was from the back (under the dash) so i could write down the order of the wiring. I was lucky in the fact the wiring was numbered on each terninal connector, so i just wrote the number in order on the paper in the in the picture of each gauge i drew. Dont forget to write down what each gauge or switch is for on the paper!!

          Once the wiring was off and tucked out the way i then removed the 2 nuts on each gauge so could remove the bracket holding them in. The gauges just pulled out, them laid out on the floor in order.

          The switches pushed out by squeezing the two taps on each end of the switch from the back.

          Ingtion switch was removed by un screwing and removing the plastic nut on the front.

          I then removed the screws holding in the surrond.....voila!! done!!

          I was going to paint mine also but then had a changed of hart, so i covered it to match the trim. I also used a thin layer of foam on the surround before covering it just to give it some depth and texture.

          Good luck with your mate

              Hi Mate, I just used contact glue as this was just the job for it. I didnt use any glue on the front of the surround just incase i wanted to remove it. By ruffing up the back of the surround the glue stuck well. heres a pic of the back of the surround
