    i used the dash board light brightness adjuster thing. That way when i turn the lights off its off. And when i turn em on its on but i can also adjust the brightness at the same time as the dash lights.

    Here's my handy work. I made a mistake first and cut the wrong wires!





    I used the brown and the blach cables as shown in the 2nd picture. This wired up the boost guage to come on with the ignition.
