I have white face gauges in my 97. 98 and up are a different dash and I don't know anything about that kit. Mine came from a company call APC. American products company. They make import crap like white face gauges. My kit was about $110 two years ago. As for the paper thing, for 97 and older anyway, your stock gauge faces are a thin plastic sticker, just like the ones that come in the kit. Either way, how much abuse do your gauges see?
