I can't remember for sure, but I think most "dimmer wires" go to 12V when you turn the lights on. all you gotta do is tap that wire and run it to the gauge "dim" wire.

they say to use an actual headlight power wire. Which is pretty lame.

Just pull out you stereo, stick a probe in the harness with the key on and lights off and measure something below 3V and turn the lights on and measure 12V and you're in business.
