I'm looking at the "Gauge Decal Set" on Ebay...To spiff-up the 'o gauge cluster , when I noticed the decals don't come with the lettering (names) of the gauges.."gasoline","temp","battery", etc. Below the gauges...When asked about it , they said that they are silk screened on to the back of the glass ! So no decal available/needed . Took a look at mine and I guess they have held up pretty well...compared to the Gauges themselves...
...Any Advise on the R&R of these things...? Kevin

You can purchase new glass with the lettering for a very reasonable price from one of the known vendors.
Tip:search for dash instead of decals devil

Thanks Jianis...I hadn't even thought of that ! I was thinking I might get away with what I have ( who am I kidding )...But I know once the new decals are on there , the difference in the shades of white , I'll have to get the "Glass" , too...
