I can't my lights to work behind my gauges, just took it all apart as replaced all bulbs and cleaned all contacts and still nothing. I noticed an auto start behind my dash and removed 90% of that which had a few crazy slices into my stock wires. Do you think this could be affecting my lights in the dash? I hear a sound like the switch is opening for the lights but they just won't light!!!! Any suggestions?? I'm goin in for more tomorrow...
The wire for the lights is orange and black i think. Take a volt meter and hook it up to that wire and a ground with the lights off. Then switch the lights on and see if it reads 12v. If it doesnt, then you need to track down why it isnt getting power. If it does work. Then the circuit board on the back of the gauges may be bad.
"Why do it right when you can just do it!" Me
1) clean with soap/water
2) light sand with fine grit
3) rinse off with water
4) spray with prep spray and wipe off
5) apply first coat very light and let dry for 10-15 minutes
6) apply 2 or 3 more coats
If anyone is wondering this is the result of this process of painting your dash. Took 12 hours (mostly prep) but DEFINITELY WORTH IT!!!
Thanks guys, I ordered a Smittybuilt lockbox to replace the oem glovebox, should get here today. Just need to install that and figure out what to do about the trim peice that goes around the steering wheel...
Well put together, looks nice, but I cant help but think, Halloween?
I had a '79 Camaro back in the day, it was Orange with a black spoiler, my friends always said it looked good, but called it the "Great Pumpkin"
