Talking boost gauges?.....

My new dial - custom 1-off, uses an original 964 clock which has all the warning lights retained around the periphery, with a Stack Pro stepper motor boost and vacuum gauge fitted in place of the clock mechanism, with all the wizardry it brings....peak recall, backlight flashes at preset thresholds, digital output if required...etc.

The guy who made it printed the face with the same font, same spacing as the rest of the gauges, then used one of the clock hands, shortened, for the boost hand. Programming buttons carefully fitted through 2mm glass (glad he managed to retain glass rather than perspex). Took 3-4 months to get it one, so can't wait to fit it.
