Okay, so all that answered my previous list of questions were incredibly helpful. Now, I am curious as to where you guys installed your ground/power wires for the gauge lamps. I was thinking maybe a fuse in the fuse box under the dash/steering column? Maybe even run a separate fused wire to these? I was even leaning on wiring them to a switch so that the light was strictly used for the night time driving and not use the bulb up during the way, except of course for the air/fuel gauge which needs to be lit up. But yeah, any tips? any locations you guys have found to be safe/useful? Thanks for any input,

i think most people tap the light power on their gauges into the stock gauge lights. i believe it can be done so the stock dimmer and light switch controls the aftermarket gauge lights. maybe someone else can chime in with a more specific explaination.

I used the ashtray light, it allows you to dim the lights.

I did exactly what lee explained and my gauges had a dim light switch so I didn't have to worry about that
