fooling about on ebay i found this...

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 0793309176

bit expensive but i think it looks good. hoping it will be a continuing line, especially if the branding on the gauges is customer specific - for instance if you can select your own text. the custom gauges look the goods too in my opinion....

Good gauges can run $300 each - customise them with logos. extra $

The moulded plastic bit could be a couple hundred too.

Expensive yes, but hardly extortionate.


FWIW, I've spent ~1000 on gauge tripod and autometer gauges in the GT-P. They don't have custom logos on them.

Im actually making mine myself...the holder that is, not the gauges. Bought an ICC top cover plate for $10 and a two set gauge holder.

Measured the circumference of the holder and dremelled out the same round pattern into the ICC cover top plate so that the holders sit in nice and flush. Have then used basic bog underneath to seal it all up with a hole for the wires to come through.

Next step will be to get some fibreglass matt and mould it around, start sanding and paint them.

Bit of work so far but has only cost me $45 including paint, Cover, bog and fiberglass kit. Its coming along slowly but steadily.

Hey Andrew
I use reofill instead of basic bog and fibreglass mat. It's basically bog with the fibreglass mixed in already and cuts down on application and sanding time while giving the same strength and end result. May need a light skim of bog over the top, but works well for me.

Awesome,

Thanks for that. Ive been busy so this has been on the back burner. This reofill sounds like some good stuff.
