Sorry for the delay. Whats confusing you on the lighting gel? If its on a stock overlay then yes you wet sand the green off the back side, polish, and then place the lighting gel on the back where you sanded/polished. Lmk if that answered your question

Turned out like crap. I did it and I painted the needles silver like the Saleen gauges. The window is too scratched. I used 1000 grit and I polished the heck outta it and it still looks terribly hazey

06stangsc - if you would like to talk to me on the phone just shoot me a pm and we'll get a time setup. Few quick questions: is this the stock cluster? Did you use a random orbital buffer and micro scratch remover to polish the window after you wet sanded the green off? and did you glue the lighting gel in place or just place it on the back?

Thanks for the help i really appreciate it. I only have the web on my phone for the weekend cause i'm outta town so it wont let me pm you. Yeah i wet sanded it and used scratch x and swirl x just cause it wasn't working. I placed the gel in i didn't glue. I was considering using a blade to just cut out the window

Be real careful when cutting the window out, the knife blade will slip really easy. I took plenty of pictures during the whole process, Memphisstylee was going to put them in his write up ,but some how just hasn't. if you pm me, I'll email them to you.this way you can see an idea of what it looks like.

light gels for the message center not the whole gauge cluster. I used two light gels for the message center cause it kept coming out orange not red. I actually cut out the window also because the sanding and scratch x still left it very hazey and hard to see through.
