      So I just installed some silver overlays on my cluster from whitegauges.net. They look pretty good. I'll post some pics up when I copy them off my camera...

      Update on overlays... So installed them last night in a usual evening temperature (around 40F). Before that I actually installed them on my cluster gauges as per instructions, let them dry for a few hours at room temperature to make sure they're dry, squeegeed all of the bubbles out of them, and they looked perfect.

      So I left them in there overnight and didn't drive my car all day (it actually got pretty sunny and warm here in Western Washington, quite a rare occasion. So when I looked inside my car around 5PM I was shocked to find my gauges all bubbled up!!! After a range of mixed emotions, I called and e-mailed whitegauges.net telling them about my problem and asking them how I/we can fix this problem. I probably won't hear from them at least until tomorrow (since it's Sunday today). I opened them up to see if any of them could be pushed out - no luck. The sun did it's job and they're on there very well all bubbled up. ... Waiting until Monday.

      Another update. Just talked to a guy from WhiteGauges.net and he was very cool about it. He said that with all the custom gauges they do (as this one was with a color change to silver) they print two sets just in case something happens to the first one. So they should me mailing that one out today, and I will make sure to use the hair dryer while putting them on to make sure I can get the bubbles out as they form.

      Wish me luck!!!

      So here's the finished product... while I was waiting for the gauges to dry completely I added a little bit of carbon fiber look to my cluster... let me know what you think.

      Carbon-Tech Vinyl Sheet - dark grey (the most realistic looking one I found so far in stores, without going to internet). I picked it up at autozone for around $15 for a 22"x17" sheet.

      Part number IP-181EZ (made by Pilot Motorsports)... I tried searching for it to get you a link to it, but can't seem to find it, even though it's a part number straight from the box.

      Lip style; found what seemed to be a decent deal for them painted: (eBay)

      Hope it doesn't suck.
      That's a good price on the spoiler. That's how much I paid for mine un-painted a few months ago. It went down in price. But for me it worked out back then because I knew I was going to paint the whole car anyways...
      No doubt. It's ABS plastic (aren't some fiberglass?), but it works great, no noise; I'm curious if it'll lower the turbulence against the hatch and lift our mileage a bit. We'll see. And it's the lip style from the 09-10 model:







      Pardon the crappy camera phone shots.

      Ah. Then I was misinformed. Still, I dig it.

      Thanks for the heads-up. The after-market industry seems to be quite confused by the model years of the Aveo series. Those vent visors were listed on Amazon as incompatible with the '07 model, but the box said otherwise. Weird.
