Hey, I've got an EL instrument cluster I want to sell and want to fire it up, get some photo's, can I do that without plugging it in to the car? Really couldn't be bothered pulling my car apart just to plug it in.

Thanks for taking the time.

If you can get hold of a spare plug for the back of it, and connect the correct positives and negatives to a 12v source then one would assume you could 'fire it up' rather easily
