Ditto, it might help to know what model and where you live. If you're near a major metropolitan area there should be some auto customizing shops.

Well, they exist in some smaller towns too. Try some search engine for "auto upgrades" or "custom auto" something like that. Plus try adding your zip code to the search. Nice classic car by the way.

Removal of the instrument cluster on a w126 is pretty straightforward. Here is a link:

http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w126...r-removal.html

That should help with replacing the lights but do you need to replace some of the gauges as well????

Try the w126 as well if you have questions. If one of the gauges are not working someone on that forum can help you.

One more link. There is a picture if you want to make the hooks yourself. It is one a w124 but same idea.
