I'll try to break it down for you wink.gif

  1. I held the cluster over the wheel.
  2. The front of the cluster was facing the windshield
  3. The entire unit was upside down
  4. I was looking at the back side of the cluster upside down
  5. Then I moved the cluster down a couple of inches
  6. Then I rotated the unit so the top (which is the bottom right now because its upside down) went in first
  7. At this step the rear of the cluster (green part) is laying on the column so you can plug everything in.
  8. Then rotate it so it sits perfectly in its place

I hope that helps.
It sounds alot harder than it really is. This whole process took maybe 1 minute with plugging everything in.
I'm not sure as to the price of these. I helped romas out with somthing and he gave me a discounted price.

One thing I do know. You will need to send him your stock black plastic piece from the cluster.

I will return one day.

It cost me borrowing a truck, taking a 6ft tall box that weighed 100 pounds. Putting it into the truck, drove that box down to NJ from NY. Stored this box until i could take off a day from work. Then I took this HUGE box an hour away from my home in NJ to the shipping company. Did I mention it was HUGE and WEIGHED 100 POUNDS ! laugh.gif

All for a person I never met before. Then we worked out a deal for my trouble. A small cash amount and a stock piece shipped back to him in return. If you would like a price on this item, I would PM doggy directly.

My car came from Toyota with the wood grain. I'm not sure about the quality of the EBay kits.


On another note, you can pic this cluster cover up for around $185 shipped.

DCW stuff is always expensive but its because its perfect and hand made, im not saying id pay 185$ for a bezel.. but im saying his prices are the way they are for a reason and it reflects his work, the people have have enough money to get his things, i applaud you and am jealous, but for me 185$ could go better spent on performance things wink.gif

to really get the feel of the value of this peice, try to make one yourself. $185 might not seem so bad after it all.
