hole in the dash. Slide the U shaped metal piece onto the studs on the back of the gauge and secure with the provided nuts.

Got home, sorry its a little rough but it was a really fast sketch.

The idea is that the ring can be used in two ways one as an angle ring and also as a dimmer/shade ring.

The assembly is pretty simple the order would be:

Gauge - Dimmer Ring - U Thingy that secures it to whatever you are mounting it to - finally the nuts that hold everything in place.

The dimmer rings have a lip where the gauge bezel part of the meter rests thus holing it in place, at least thats what the auto meter ones had (See axial cut sketches...)

I'm trying to be as clear as possible, anyway, let me know if you need anything else...

Cheers mate!
