This picture shows how the center dash bezel for the 1977-1982 cars are installed.  If you take yours apart always make sure you mark which resistor came off each gauge, if you don’t your in for an hour long task of figuring out which resistor belongs on which gauge.  Please note: The fuel, oil pressure and amp gauge all have metal washers on the the ground pole.  This is so each gauge can pick up a ground from the gauge pod.  If  you insulate these your gauges will not work correctly and neither will your dash lamps.  The fuel gauge stud supplies the ground to the cluster housing for the other gauges and… your right side dash lamps so if you insulate this stud your dash lamps will not work on the right side.
