      Hey everyoooone!

      2002 GTI

      Swapped cluster rings and needles over from a ( B5.5? ) Passat. Color matched the needle centers to the rings, and molded the center of the passat cluster into the GTI cluster so I could use the small circle rings and the turn signal/brights covers. I also wrinkle blacked the "housing" to match the rest of my interior. I also have a Newsouth double column pod molded into a stock steering wheel cover, not pictured though, thats what the gaps about. Just want to see what you guys think, and yes the lens are going to get a good buffing, stupid PO scratches.

      Before:

      Either have I! It's why I figured i'd take the plunge and go ahead and do it. Hesitated on the first cut on my gauge cluster. Thank you.

      Thank for the kind words people.

      Hurt, that gauge is Awesome!

      I though about using the bottom section of my cluster for AFR and PSI, but I really enjoy my double column pod. Hmmmm!
