Yep. Except my dumbass self put the TA bezel on without letting them dry, even though I KNEW I shouldn't have.. and I have a crease.

How hard were they to put on? I have the TA bezel on the way and will get the whiteface gauges after some suspension stuff.

They aren't perfect, but they look fine to me, which means they'll look great to an outsider.

It took about 2 hours from start to finish, including trying to find everything (Rubbing alcohol, cotton *****, fill up a spray bottle with soapy water, sockets, etc) I also changed over the bulbs to blue LEDs.

As long as you stay patient and don't rush, it goes fine. I did it all last night in the car, so when I lined them up I pluged the cluster back in and tested them. Good tunes make it go easier. On a scale of 1-10, I'd say it was probably a 3. LET THEM DRY BEFORE PUTTING EVERYTHING BACK TOGETHER. I just had to go out and take everything apart again to fix a crease.

Yeah, get some pics up as soon as you can. I'd also like to see how they came out. I bought white faced overlays from whitegauges.net on e-Bay. They are probably not the best quality you can get but for the price, they look good. And Justin over there is a good guy to deal with. He told me they could pretty much do anything (I'm assuming different colors also). They are faint at night so a dash lamp upgrade is almost a must. I'm still screwing around with my dash lighting (going to blue LED's) but I'll get some pics up also when I'm finished and happy.

Here's one with the stock bulbs. The cam had a long exposure so they are not really as bright as they look in the pic:
