See if you can find the brand FARIA

http://www.faria-instruments.com/styles.php

I had used them they look nice and If I were you I would take out that amp meter ,that is competly useless and a lot of extra wiring ,use a led or bulb for it and since you have the voltmeter in the system you will always see your battery is being charged or not (you know when the engine is running voltmeter shows a little over 12 volt ,between 13-14volt,that means you are charging).Or leave the amp meter but do not wire it.

I spent some time with my original Airguides cleaning, polishing and detailing. I was hoping to find some of the face decals that were available years ago, but like so many things, they are long gone. I may have some new face decals made, but they still work great.

Well today Tim C. from OJPROPS stopped by the shop to look at the boat. He was excited to see that I restoring the boat and bring it back to life. We talked about getting the drop down platform set put on so that is underway. I will also be getting some more parts that are need to bring it up to date in the drive shaft area. I will get some pics whenI get the new parts.

Mr.MC there is a place that will reface the gauges. http://www.classicboatwork.com/class...ion_gauge.html. Here is the link. I have talked to them about redoing mine. As of yet no price has been set to have them redone.

Thanks for the info. I will check them out. In fact, I took the speedometers out of the boat before storage and have them in my shop for a little more polishing. Looks like one more thing to add to the winter list.
