996 Aluminum Gauge Cluster Rings

Recommended Posts

Contact Eric. He did a group buy on the gauge rings in Artic Silver a couple of months ago but the manufacturer has had some significant delays, so some people may have dropped out of the group buy and you can grab their order.

I bought a set from Performance Products. I agree that they were less than perfect, although I installed them anyway. I liked the finish (bruched aluminum), but the the manufacturer did a poor job of cutting the ends of the trims - the edges were sharp and bent. They looked fine once they were installed and you don't notice the imperfections.

FWIW, I used a silicone type adhesive with mine so I could remove them if necessary. I found installation just a little bit tricky for me anyway. in that with this type of adhesive you can move the rings a bit after you seat them until the silicone sets up. I put the center one on first and worked outward holding each one until it set up. But, I have a lot of time on my hands and my wife says I'm very fussy! <_<

I also used clear silicone to install mine. I put masking tape over the rings so that they would adhere better to the plastic rings and let them set overnight.

I got mine at Performance Products as well. I found that the shade of silver that they come in did not quite match the rest of the aluminum pieces in my 996, so I sprayed them with Dupli-color DSGM 501 "Galaxy Silver" which gave me a good match. I also fastened them on with RTV silicon which can be easlily removed with alcohol.
