    Wiring?

    Did you run the wires through the grommet behind the glove box?

    Regarding the wiring for the gauges, I think you should have two power wires for each gauge, a constant 12v and an ignition live, or just an ignition live, illumination and an earth.
    I can't remember what I had on mine, I know I had ign live, illumination and earth but I didn't run any extra fuses and they've been on there for a few years without any issues.

    yeah i did was pretty easy thankfully once finding it, also the actual wiring im ok with its just the fuses ima bit iffy about there will be a constant live to the battery and a switched live to the one by the realys, not sure if i need to fuse either of them but as u say u havnt and its been fine i might just not worry, tbh it should be alright... famous last words :P
