4 screws to remove the surround, then another 4 to remove the unit. Then you have to split it open (another 2 screws and a few clips), and remove the dials from the unit. Thats some more screws lol. Then the hard bit - changing the actual dials. You have to remove the needles from the speedo and rev counter, and try to cut off around petrol and temp gauges (REALLY don't want to remove the needles here) Once thats done the new dials from metal monkey slide on, put the needles back on in the right place (and hope they don't stick lol). Then you have to remove the orange filter from behind the trip clock and replace it with a bit of white paper. Then screw it all back together again! It's not simple but it's do-able if you have the patience.

However at 80 quid I wont be getting any metal monkey dials... I'll have to glue coloured film where I want stuff lol... Is the filter behind the odo screen a sand off one or just a removable film like your clock was?

Ahh in that case yeah you just need to sand off the orange backing. Apparently it can be quite tricky though
