    With rhe digital cluster you have Primary, Secondary, and Ambient. Changing the Primary color changes the color of the gauges. Also, since it’s tied into lights, you won’t get color until the light sensor says it’s dark enough.

    Hi guys.

    I have a '17 GT export model. I already got the gauges from a forummember. But I'm having trouble finding the trim I need. Anyone have a lead on a set?

    Depending on your skills, you could do what I did. Even if you don't do real carbon fiber, you could use plain fiber glass to fill the hole, then epoxy it smooth, and finally wrap it whatever you want.

    Oh Hogwash!!!

    You don't even need to do that much. The only thing you DO need, is TIME. Time that you're willing to spend on doing something yourself.

    A Dremel, some JB Weld, a little fiberglass or carbon fiber, and you're on your way. You'd be very surprised at what you can accomplish, if you just put your mind to it.

    One of the biggest problems in America today, is our young men aren't willing to spend a little time to do things for themselves.

    I'm not that young and not american, so guess this doesn’t apply to me.
    But I spend two years straight while working my ass off, to earn enough money to buy my 110k USD Mustang in cash. That was time and dedication. :muscle:

    For the life of me, I can't figure out why the Chinese haven't come up with a carbon fiber version. They have carbon fiber 3-vent dash trims on Ebay for about $300, yet none with the PP-gauges. Also, it isn't much of a step to make it a full dash bezel that has the clips and everything. They'd sell a boat load of them. Unless there is some kind of licensing or patent that prevents them from doing it.

    Maybe they need a hint as they might not be aware of the potential... If all cars have the plug pre-installed as from 2016 it would at least be easy to get one gauge up and runing as I suppose even with the plug you need a tune for the oil pressure gauge (setting change from switch to transducer).
