Gauges - the final decision!

Well, I did say I was prone to changing my mind, so to not disappoint
I've done it again. This time though it's the final decision and money has changed hands.

Keeping with my intention to maintain the classic instrument look but introduce a little modern tech to proceedings I kept looking about for an alternative to the speed hut offerings. Whereas it would have been nice to have unique logos on the gauges I was concerned at spending so much on gauges not sourced in the UK.

My targets were:

1)  White on black gauge design
2) Through the dial LED illumination.
3) All electric senders.
4) Minor gauges 270° sweep

Enter the Smiths Flight range.

In the end I went for

Fuel gauge
Water Temperature gauge
Oil Temperature gauge
Oil Pressure gauge

Here's a brief video of the little dance they do at power on.

So that's one decision properly made - no going back!
