If you don't have a original tub like myself and it only came with four small holes for the gauge cluster panel. You can use a 'Rivnut". It's not correct but you can't see it either and worked perfect for installation. Use slotted screws of the same likeness as the OEM to keep it original looking.
"A rivet nut, also known as a blind rivet nut or threaded insert, is a one-piece internally threaded and counterbored tubular rivet that can be anchored entirely from one side." ~ Wikipedia
Easy install if you have the tool but any local bodyshop can most likely help you out if needed.

Iíll add to an old post... on our repo dash panel we used a wood block and created the indentions for the clips. That way the clips could easily be installed by hand from the backside. The JD Juan dash was as flat as a pancake but this worked well.
