FS: silver gauge faces + silver instrument rings

************************************************
******************** SOLD ***********************

My garage cleanout continues...
Want to give your instrument cluster the "Boxster S" feeling?

For sale are:
Silver instrument faces and instrument front cover, both from the defunct instrument cluster (the speedo and the tacho no longer work, the rest is fine) from my Boxster S
So don't buy some cheap crap from eBay which doesn't look the part, better get the original!

$75 gets you the three instrument faces plus the front cover, incl. shipping to the Continental US
$90 gets you the whole cluster, incl. shipping to the Continental US

NOTE: This only fits 986 with the newer style instrument cluster (2001 (?) and up)

reply sent. In the interest of others, here is my reply:

How to install them:

first you have to remove the cluster:
Instrument Cluster
This will allow you to replace the front glass meaning you can attach mine with the silver rings, and that's totally easy, the more trickier part is to replace the faces as you need to first move the needles out of the way: the actual process of replacing the face is described here:
Speed Yellow Gauge Faceplate - Articles
- scroll down to the middle of the article

But as an advise: You must be super careful and smooth when you take the needles off as there is a chance to dislocate the fragile cogs inside the motors which drive the needles.
If you have doubts that you can perform any of the steps described above, then better don't do it
