ALEX said:Here is the face installed. In my first post I mentioned that at night the nuimage gauge face illuminates in blue, that is not so it illuminates in the same amber color. that was what the internet said. I am more please with the same amber color because the dashboard won't look like a christmas tree. at night it lights up brighter than the stock and looks cleaner. in the daytime it looks classy. the installer at North Hollywood Speedometer noted that it is the best looking gauge face he'd seen and it was his first mada install.
I thought so too!! I have to say I love this truck, the ride the style etc etc but the only thing I found disappointing is the cheap looking interior specially the dash. I hated looking at the big piece of plastic on top of the dashboard and if I can do anything to upgrade it will be done. That's the reason I got the wood kit. this mod is something I strongly recommend because it looks classy. the pics. don't do any justice to seeing it in person. At night the numbers are brighter. I have to say I have spent a good penny on this truck but this is the last new vehicle I will buy. I'm 48 y.o. and counting and the way I keep my cars I have to say that I have a good 15 years to go with it. I have made all those changes to it because I have not experienced anything that other members experience. (brakes, rattling, pulling,). Last May I drove from Los Angeles to Miami and had no problems whatsoever. I've been lucky so far and don't know if is the way I drive. I got the new brakes update and even with the old ones never had problems. One more thing I hope that Usspeedo or Nuimage comes out with the lens kit for the mada. The lens kit is the lens that sits ontop of your gauges. The rims around the gauges are chromed like the ford expedition & Escalades.weezr17 said:SWEET! I like it....how much for that?
Damn Alex...I know you put a LOT of $$$$$ and time into your Mada and it looks GREAT...BUT....I thought you said you were done? Can't stop can you.
It's addicting , huh?
HEEEEEEY LONNIE! Where did you get that "SMILIE"???? Did you steal it from CLUB TITAN???
thank you!!!weezr17 said:I hear what your saying and TOTALLY AGREE! If your gonna run that Mada into the ground, it's gonna be around for quite sometime, so why not! MAKE IT YOURS BABY! I only wish I had the money to put all those mods on mine.
Ya know ALEX, when I found this site, your Mada was THE FIRST MADA I saw on the gallery and fell in LOVE with it (that's why I got that grille too)....NO LIE! I also liked Mcfly, Todd and gunslinger's ride to. KEEP IT UP! I LOVE IT! :2cool:
I will LOVE it if it matches the same brushed aluminum that the 05 LE's come with?? Does anyone know? I just replaced all my interior trim pieces out to the 05 brushed aluminum ones...and if this face looks like the stock brushed aluminum finish......I'LL BE ALL OVER IT!!!ockevin said:Does anyone else like the silver face guages ?
Hello Alex, do you happened to have the installer phone number? I want to do the samething. I live here in Los Angeles area, close to Los Angeles Sports Arena and Coliseum. ThanksALEX said:The gauge face you can order from www.stylinconcepts.com and the part # is SS195 (Stainless steel gauge face). it was $149.95 + shipping. the installation was done by North Hollywood Speedometer in North Hollywood California and he charged me $250.00 for install. I checked with other places and found about 3 other places that claimed they could do it for about 150.00 but told me they were not responsible if a pointer brakes. I didn't want to take that chance because if you break a pointer you are out of a whole cluster. North Hollywood speedometer told me that they are responsible for anything that goes wrong. you can also find this stainless gauge face at www.usspeedo.com
