i did mine a long time ago, but IIRC the red wire spliced into the purple wire in the cluster, and black to the closest ground. make sure you pull out the cluster evenly or you might break one of the clips since it's so cold out.

I know I have read a step by step instruction on this, either on this forum or on scoobymods.com . Try a search on both sites. I am sure you will find it easily.

Ok. I FOUND THIS...

Remove cowl around gauges (2 screws). Remove gauge pod (3 screws, requires harnesses to be unplugged from the back, too).
Remove plastic covers, clear and black (tabs around perimeter).

Carefully overlay the gauges over the stock faces. DO NOT remove the needles. The needles can be spun as needed. The tips can be lifted up A LITTLE. Just be patient and careful and you can get the overlays on. You should then make little notches in the plastic casing of the pod so that the wires that come off the gauges don't get pinched when you reassemble. Reassemble the gauge pod completely. Before placing back in the cavity, feed the wires off the gauges down into the main wiring area.

Wiring: Remove the main panel below the driver's dash (1 pop rivet on the left, 1 screw near the hood release and 1 screw on the bottom right). Take off the bottom cover to the steering column (1 gold screw). In the smallest harness, right under the blinker stalk, there is a black with orange stripe wire. Splice the red (positive) wire of the inverter to this wire. Attach the ground wire of the inverter to any metal surface (there's a big metal plate that covers the wiring area below the steering column - you can use on the bolts that attaches this. Plug the gauges into the clips of the inverter feed. Secure the inverter box somewhere under the dash and reattach the main cover and the steering column cover. DONE!

oh yeah, if your needle gets stuck when you go for a drive later on, try pulling up on the center that the needle is attached to, it's most likely hitting the inner ring of the overlays.

i could've sworn it was the purple wire. i must be getting all of my colors mixed up, everything i think i did seems to be wrong oh well, if i ever take my cluster out again or if they stop working, i'll check it.
