well "as is" pretty much means that you can't blame them if you burn a hole through your board and fry your whole gauge lol. the parts that blackcat supplies you are good, its just your lack of skill that can F*** things up. but my uncle got this kit for his F-150 and it only took him 10mins to do it but he does that stuff for a living. plus i think it voids your warrenty.

2 ways you can go about doing it:

1. you can go full bore and change the LEDs behind the cluster face, hoping it will work, and kicking yourself if it didnt.

2. You could just get the face covers, throw a little coloured window tint(the bigger the number, the better) on the face to begin with, then the face over top. Simple, quick, easy, and done in a heartbeat.

Take your pic
