Thanks!

from left to right... boost, EGT, trans temp

they are from glowshift.com the grey 7 series...

i am having a problem with the vinyl styaing in place
so i might run a baseball type stitch along the seams
like on the steering wheel

the "glue" my brother suggested apparently never dries

two tiny hex bolts from my mercedes oil pan through the dash... i also ordered
a male and female plug from an company that looks stock.. so when i take my
dash apart i unplug it and it all comes off... all i need now is a quick disconnect
for the boost tube...
