    Is it possible to pull the dash out and put a standard factory clock in the spot beside the key hole if it didn't come with one? I figured it would still have the connectors regardless

    The factory clock is kinda worthless in that location, I wouldn't even bother if I were you.

    BTW the dash IS a pain in the butt to pull out. I found a little pictorial post on how to take it off when I was putting LEDs in my dash. Gaining access to the clock isn't bad, but hope you don't have to follow any wires lol.

    Who ever made the post must of had Toyotas special 4 bolt puzzle dash because mine SUUUUCKED. At least my dash looks sweet now lol.

    you don't have to take out the dash at all, really. just drop the panel under the steering wheel and then you can snap out the ignition ring and clock bezel piece. the wiring harness hookup for the oem clock should be right there behind it.

    What did you have to do in the process of changing your dash cluster from red to white? I know new LEDs but I thought on the tax and speed had a red film on them or am I wrong?

    No film that I know of Just swap out for some LED's and your set. SERIOUSLY though I have done mine 3 times already one time at about 11 at night with only the interior light to see with lol!! Trust me it is not hard at all!! It will take you 15-20min tops from start to finish.
