    It's not hard to install. It can casue issues with the gauges and accuracy though.

    mine lies...

    it says i have a 1/4 tank left then my fuel light comes on...

    Before it would hit E then the light would come on now it stays at 1/4 and stays there until i add more gas i think its getting stuck so ima pull it and see whats goin on.

    Take a picture of your gauges before you start. Then you can put the needles back like you found them.

    Force It In: Your car looks like it has the instrument panel of a small aircraft with all the guages installed LOL jk but really yours look pretty nice man.

    I bought a 1g last week that some glow gauges installed. Not too fond of them myself.

    OP- The bulb should be a 194, available at any autozone or advanced or napa parts store.

    they are very easy to install.. as for accuracy, if installed correctly they should all be accurate, the only one that might be not accurate is the gas gauge but is very easy to fix if it gets messed up. When you install the gauges leave the cover off, drive to a gas station fill your tank all the way full then move your gauge to right above the full line.

    You would have to buy one that is made to glow red. Most of them have a colored filter on that changes white light to the color of the gauge. I do think there are some more expensive ones that are changeable though.

    My white gauges are just overlays, so they are backlit like the stock gauges.
