Send the pod back and get a dash mount or pillar mount. I have he dash mount and like it alot. Here's a pic--
Shaggin, what paint did you use to paint your pod? I ordered the same gauges w/the dash pod. Geno's told me there is no paint that matches.
I used medium slate Mopar--i also would like to what paint works
Do I wire power into the dimmer circuit or to 12 volts?
Thanks for any help.
For power to the gauges you need a switched 12V source. I used the large pink wire with the yellow tracer in the 100 pin bundle above the parking brake. To power the lights for the gauges you conect into the dimmer switch. As slagburn noted it is an orange wire with a brown tracer.Orange with brown tracer. As the plug is facing the same way it fits into the back of the headlight/dimmer panel, it is on the top row, 2nd from the drivers side. The orange with black tracer is right next to it on the far driver's side. :thumbsup:
This helped me out with visuals, since Im not exactly the electrical genius Slagburn is.
