I bought a pair of white face gauges for my '94 Sentra XE about a month and a half ago off Import Intelligence... the instructions that were supplied with the gauges said that you need to remove the needles off the OEM gauges to install the white face gauges... but what I wanna know is... is it possible to put the white face gauges on WITHOUT removing the needles. I'm really wiery about removing the needles... I've read stories of people messing up their speedos and needle breakage with such projects. I was thinking I could cut the white face gauges in half; vertically... so like this I can just slide the two halves together under the needles. But the instructions also mention that you've got to soak the guages underwater or something?!? (I don't have the instructions in front of me, I'm just recalling off the top of my head). If that's the case, I don't think cutting the gauges in half vertically would work. Feedback on this issue would be much appriciated. Thanks.
