Good Product. Took me about full two days to install. Recommend you get a wiring diagram for your mustang if you do not have one (and label your wires). Biggest issue I had was with the Alternator. When you replace the instrument panel, you disconnect the green wire for the "exciter" on the alternator. This has to be connected to 12 Volts for the alternator to work. Greg Karpe and the folks at Dakota Digital were very supportive and responsive to my questions. Very pleased with the new instrument panel.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

I saw this on their website. Looked into it and bought it. Installed this pretty easy. Instructions are really good. Looks beautiful and get a lot of compliments. Much better and more acurate then the original. Plus extra stuff I didn't have before.
