I did this to my car and everything seems to be OEM!
I'm gonna make this DIY short & simple, hope you get the Idea if not shoot me an email. I'll try to help you out
I will accept critics!

Tools that I used!
Screwdriver flat and Philip head.
New cutting blades
Saw
Sand paper


You are going to start by removing the cluster!


You will need to cut both side of the dash


One side you will need to cut the whole tab and part of the foam.


The other side only the tab just ably 1/4.




Using a blade, knife or whatever you want to use, cut about 1/16 of that edge, is the now that holds the cluster housing.


You have to cut that and make the cluster flat from the bottom.




I used FELT TAPE because the cluster is gonna be sitting on top the cover. And that help as support.




Now you gotta cut the housing about two inches.




Now test everything together




If everything looks fine put the cluster back together.
I wrapped the cluster with black leather to cover the inside of the dash. And I used the sand paper to make every single cut smother and nice!

Hope you can notice the leather between the cluster the the housing.






Ok and this is the finished product!




Hope you guys like it! :)

MK4 cluster. $55 junk yard.
Mk3 harness to MK4 cluster $60 but I made it so it was free to me! Lol
Felt tape $2
Leather $free
Total = $117 on parts and 10 hours of your time.

The switches I did them my self! $25 the package of 30 led's and 1 week of my time $priceless
The hardest one was the sunroof switch.

Good job on the swap. Are you gonna leave it blue or match the color to all the other red you've got going on?

I think everything RED it'll get overbored, so I was just thinking ether do it WHITE or just leave it BLUE!
BUT I need a new cluster to try it out.
