I would find an instrument(dash) light and tap into that wire. That way the guage will dim when you dim the instrument lights.
Not up to date on 1st gen so thats the best I can do.

How about trying to tap off the dimmer switch? That should be relatively easy to get to

I tapped into my ash tray light bulb wire, very easy to get too, and all 3 gages light up very well.
