I had these made for my truck and the laser cutter had a minimum order so ended up with about 20 more than I needed. I went ahead and had all of them coated micro wrinkle black along with the one I kept.

They sandwich between the stock rear housing and outer bezel just like the factory gauge face. They are 20ga stainless with the smaller openings being 2 1/16 and the larger 4". Indicator arrows replicate those found on the stock face but a bit larger.

The price listed includes shipping.

I love these and think the price is right, the problem for me is I have an Autometer gauge set that runs a smaller diameter speedo. I am sure that is the issue for most guys.

For me the smaller speedo just did not fill the panel enough, but I can understand people wanting the design options that size brings. Once these are gone I may have another run made with a 3 3/8" center gauge.


If anyone would be interested in that let me know if you would prefer raw stainless or coated.

If you do please let me know. For the price the Autometer gave me the look I was going for. I am not spending $400 + for gauges so Autometer with the smaller speedo for me.

I agree that the options are pretty limited and often expensive with the 4" stuff.

I will modify the dxf file over the holidays and talk with the laser cutter about having some more made. I may move the smaller gauges in a bit to account for the increased spacing and larger bezels on the autometer parts.
