wow sweet, i think this kinda gave me the confidence i needed to do this mod... :P
*orders bulb covers*
except one thing -
There are little black rings under the gauge needles, if they pop up, it makes it easier to slip paper under it, just make sure you push them back down before re-assembly. You know there down if the needles move easily - as if in a liquid. The picture below tries to show these little rings but its hard to show.
where are these little black things you speak of? i can't really see them clearly in the pic provided up there. i'd rather not touch the needles at all.. but if it makes it that much easier, can you explain a little bit more on where they are, and how/where to lift them up, or whatever? and then how to put them back.. i'm a tad confused :P
