Yes, worked very well.  Used their CANBUS series.  Was able to design my own background.

I like the gauges but how different is it with them being so much closer as opposed to being recessed a bit further back?  Also, what sizes are they?

No difference really.

I do not have that record- you can measure the holes in the dash for best fit.

Yes they’re great - mine have been working well for 5 plus years now.  Lots of customization options too. Used them for my console gauges.

Absolutely. They are great, and let you design your own if you prefer

Thank you.

I did. One thing I wish I would've done is pull the gauge markings and font in just slightly instead of the way it is toward the edge. From certain angles and because the gauges have the rings, it can be partially obscured.

Nice!  Also how do you like the sniper system?

I had a long thread on here with pictures and key install pointers on the way i did my Sniper install, but in short. I am happy with the system.
Lets just say if you have any eletrical problems, be it poor ground, or poorly insulated cables you will find out when you install the complet sniper system (TBI, coil, CD-box and halleffect distributor) they wil manifest them selvs and you have to deal with it  :) 
But once taken care of the system is awsome.
