Bought a Princess Auto Oil pressure and Water temp gauge today.


Been sort of looking for a pair of aux gauges for the Gp for next spring. Not too fussy, just somthing plain and not big bucks.

Princess Auto has their 2" LED gauges on sale right now for 50% off. I was passing by this morning, so I grabbed two. Now I obviously wouldn't ever trust them on a high dollar motor, but I think they'll make a nice little underdash cluster. I'll make up a bezel to mount them, and I might even paint it medium blue along with the gauge bezels as well to match the dash. Made in Taiwan, so I figure that means the high end "Made in China" lol. They come with a temp and pressure sender. Fair for $22 each...if they actually work.

Put some power to them to see the face light up. They look nice, and I like the straightforward graphic along with the 3/4 sweep.
