Gauge Backlighting?

YO! Ive lost the url for that site that customizes the backlighting....

Now that I have my cobalt series autometer, i think its a disservice to my main gauges w/ DIC to not get them backlit blue as well, and itll help tied the whole theme of the car together and shine nicely........

Whats some links to site that does this?
Should I do this myself?
If so how can I, and how easy is it to remove the stock speedo and rpm gauge?

In addition to the back lighting check out the US Speedo guage faces, you can get a blue color for your main guages(speedo and tach). I am working on getting those for my car since I have a Autometer triple guage pod with the Cobalt series guages in my sedan.

Think i would just buy the LED backlight kit for $35 plus shipping ($47 in all, a bit pricey but it looks great and hopefully not much work to be done to install) wish someone already had bought the led kit from them so i'd know what they had to do to install it.

are there any DIY threads for gauge cluster removal? Dash removal?

CAN THE CAR BE DRIVEN WITH THE GAUGE DISCONNECTED AND REMOVED? OR WILL MY CAR BE INOP WHILE I AM DOING THE INSTALL?

"they" said it can probably be driven FYI-so i answered my own question if anyone is following along.... Most can can drive without it.... they arent 100% sure, but more than likely itll start up and drive just fine
