Post 02 Gauge Cluster Overlay

Looking to buy a gauge cluster overlay for my 02. The overlays that has the speedo, RPM, oil fuel etc. That's probably all I need. Thanks

It would probably be cheaper for you to just put in a white expo cluster. Check with Houston Montgomery, I think he may be getting a few and they will be a direct swap for you

Well the thing is, I don't want a white cluster. I like my black and blue that I have now. I painted my overlays a different color and wired in some LED strips but when I went to sand the overlays, I sanded a wrong part of it and my RPM needle doesn't light up as much as the others and it cannot be fixed. So I was just looking for the overlays. But I will check with him and see what he has to offer.

PS. Could not find him on here....

Had some on my 03 Ranger. Not worth the money IMO

I've got a set of black overlays, but they're from a 98 explorer...









I sanded the back color filter off & painted it back green.

This one that you gave me is almost like mine the color and everything. That would look like the one for me.

This picture right here. Where the RPM is that part that you put the needle on, I sanded that part and now the light output for that needle is dull and doesn't match with the rest of the needles. If I get that and sand that (because I would be doing my own colors) I would probably get the same results as I have now.....

It could be that the needle back lighting isn't bright enough to make that section as bright as the others. I don't think the sanding would have that much of an effect. I wet sanded those down to 600grit and painted over them & they turned out nice.
If you've got led's in the cluster, you may need to adjust their position or add more to get the desired effect.
