www.corksport.com has them for the 1.8... i guess they would work with yours if... 1 you had a 120mph speedo... 2 wanted a 7k redline or didnt have a tach.

Wtf, why don't mine look like that? You have the silver face gauges, right? Mine have holes in the tach and the base of the needs don't entirely cover the hole so there's light showing through, it's uberghetto :( Of course...my car isn't drivable at the moment :(

The light does bleed through. I had to get creative with some black tape to stop some of it. You can see on the left of the gas gauge. I've since fixed it. There isn't much you can do about the where the needle comes out. Someone mentioned glow in the dark paint for the needle. Then you'd could remove the lights in the cluster. I'm extremely happy with the final product. For the price procarparts gauges and clear corners are great.

I have the procarparts guages, 2 sets actually.

the ones in my Pony are like what are posted above. reverse indiglo, white faces though.

i found a good solution to the light seeping problem. I left all my original guage bulbs in to illuminate the needles and the odometer.

what i did was lay strips of black electrical tape over the entire factory guage face to prevent any light from coming through.

obviously i didnt cover up the odometer holes or anything. but i have no light shing around my needles or around the guages.

the corksport ones are indiglo gauges... you wire them into power, on mine i can change the color from green to blue and i dont use any of the cluster lights since they light themselves so i have no light bleeding through... not to mention they are intense blue and green and really stand out... you can see the green on my cardomain site www.cardomain.com/id/fordboy4ever on page 2. ill work on getting pics of blue, i never use green because blue looks so much better but it was daylight when i took those pics and i didnt realize it.
