Default DIY: 94-01 Integra Cluster into 92-95 Civic

This is a detailed DIY for installing a 94-01 Integra Cluster into a 92-95 Civic. You are more that welcome to use this as a guideline as there are many ways of displaying the cluster.

Tools/Items Used:
Knife (Small Flat Head Driver)
Masking Tape
Heat Gun
Dremel (Cutting and Sanding Bits)
Ove Glove
Safety Glasses
94-01 Integra Cluster with Pigtails (I used a 94-97 Cluster)
92-95 Civic Cluster Bezel
Acrylic (Plexiglas)
Epoxy
Flat Black Spray Paint
Sandpaper
Small piece of a paperclip
EG trip odometer stick rubber end
1” nylon sleeve with O.D. ¼” and 6-32 thread size inside
2” 6-32 threaded rod

Civic Cluster Bezel Preparation:
Let’s start by getting the Civic Cluster Bezel ready. I wanted the have a clean stock feel with these gauges, so I wanted to use a stock bezel (well, really just the frame of it.).

1. Remove the Bezel from the donor Cluster. 5 tabs, use ‘em.

2. With a knife, shove it in between the Bezel and the plastic cover. Work your way around the cover, carefully prying up the cover as you go.

3. Mask off the inside of the Bezel with tape to protect it from scratches later.

4. Get out the Dremel and cutting disc and cut it out. Leave extra material to sand down so that you don’t scar the Bezel.

WEAR SAFTEY GLASSES!!

You can see how much I left to sand here:

5. Again with the Dremel, but now with the sanding tubes. Sand it flush.

Note: I also hand sanded with 180, 360 and 600 grit sand paper after using the dremel.



6. Trim three tabs of the Bezel.
Before:

After:
http://i106.photobucket.com/al...7.jpg

7. Lightly scuff the surface with fine grit sandpaper (600+), clean with alcohol and let it dry, then paint flat black.

Integra Cluster Preparation:
Get out the Integra Cluster


1. Remove the Bezel on the Integra. Tabs and 3 screws in the back!
http://i106.photobucket.com/al...0.jpg

2. With the Bezel off, remove the clear cover and cut the Bezel with a Dremel.


Note: the Bezel is on the cluster just for the picture; do not cut with the Bezel on the cluster. You will screw up!


Note: I cut down some fins on each side.


Note: I trimmed this lower part of the Bezel to allow the Civic Bezel to sit on this Bezel more easily.


To fit the cluster into the car I had to cut down the cluster’s sides a little. Both sides were cut the same.


3. Test fit, Test fit, Test fit!!!
http://i106.photobucket.com/al...2.jpg
Stop and admire a side by side.
http://i106.photobucket.com/al...1.jpg

4. Add extra material on the upper corners of the bezel where there is a gap between the integra bezel and civic bezel.



Note: I used extra Plexiglas and epoxy then sanded it flat.



5. Lightly scuff the surface with fine grit sandpaper (600+), clean with alcohol and let it dry, then paint flat black.

It should look something like this:
http://i106.photobucket.com/al...3.jpg

6. Extending the trip odometer stick:
Random parts I used-
-a small piece of a paperclip
-EG trip odometer stick rubber end
-1” nylon sleeve with O.D. ¼” and 6-32 thread size inside
-2” 6-32 threaded rod



To do it:
a. Drill a small hole in the Integra trip stick to receive half of the length of the paperclip piece you cut. This is used allow the extension something to hold onto.

b. Epoxy the paperclip piece in place.
c. Push the EG trip end onto the threaded rod.
d. Cut down the threaded rod a little. Be sure the nylon sleeve can still thread on.

e. Now, you can epoxy the extension on OR build up the diameter of the paperclip with epoxy so that the extension slides on snugly without being permanently attached.

Custom Cluster Cover Preparation:
We want our final product to have a hole for the trip odometer reset stick to be in the right spot. Yes, you can use the stock cover BUT, you’ll have a hole in the wrong spot. So, let’s make our own cover!
Get some acrylic (Plexiglas) from your local hardware store.
http://i106.photobucket.com/al...1.jpg

1. Cut the Plexiglas to rough length. Notice that it’s flat, for now.


2. Pull out the Ove Glove and Heat Gun and begin to evenly heat the Plexiglas.


3. While heating the Plexiglas apply pressure by bending it slowly. Do this until it has the same curvature as the stock cover.


4. Cut the Plexiglas to rough shape.

5. Cut the whole for your extended trip odometer stick.

6. Remove the protective plastic on both side of the Plexiglas. TIP: if it doesn’t come off easily, soak the cover in water for 5-10 minutes.

7. Epoxy the Plexiglas cover on and trim it down if you need.

Getting the bezels together:
1. Epoxy them where you see fit.

Yeah, I did it to an LS so I had no worries at all. Also, the LS has the closest to my stock redline in my EG.

In the above picture, How much of that lip do you need to leave on the bezel?

a little too strenuous for me ha, but good outcome, if i had spare time i'd attempt it, but real quick question? how do you match the speedo and everything from integra to civic, is it exact of just close?

I left very little, about a quarter of an inch or less. But, it's up to you.

maybe it will make sense when I try this... what do you mean it is up to me?

EDIT: I am at this step now... do I trim the bottom at all? Or just the top? should I use the same height as the bottom all the way around?

Thanks!!

Here's my final product:





One of the cluster lights was out... picked up some amber lights



Because I am tall, this is how I see everything when driving





I ended up cutting the little white spacer off the civic bezel and placing it between the new cluster. I also used blue masking tape for the little holes in the top left/right corners and just sprayed them black with the rest of the cluster.

Awesome job 93preludeh22!! Looks great! Sorry about not getting back, but it certainly looks like you got it done.

For everyone else, to elaborate on my previous response, the reason I say "it's up to you" I mean just that. There are sooooo many ways that you can get the pieces to match up and fit. I just chose one. I just cut until it looked good together with test fitting.
