Gauge light power

Get an add a tap from auto part store holds 2 fuses on gage lite circuit original plus another with a pigtail for the new gage lites, gage lites won't overload dash circuit, neat thing this way is they dim with rest of the instrument cluster. Piggyback to fuse on #14 for instrumentation power that dims with rest of dash instruments

[QUOTE=nvmtnlion]Okay, is there an easy pickup for the dash lights to power my gauges or do most people just go off of the ignition switched power since it's cake to attach to?
