Boost Gauge

Afternoon all

I currently have a boost gauge fitted to my scoob but im after a new one as the one i have fitted now is very difficult to see in the light.

I am looking for a 52mm mechanical boost gauge with a white backround.
Does anybody know where i could find one of these as i am useless searching on the internet.

Thanks

My boost gauge had a smoked front and that was hard to see in the daylight, so i took the front off and just cut some clear plastic and then fitted that in, looks spot on, and cheaper than another gauge, maybe worth a try?

Best UK place I've found for Autometer gauges is http://www.scoobymania.co.uk/

They don't list them all on their site but they can get them all as they are an official distributor, you just need to ask.. I got 52mm ultralite from the a coupel of months ago, elec oil temp in deg C, Elec oil pressure in bar, and mechanical boost in bar. Think they were about 30-40 each IIRC

I used the switch live off the stereo. very easy to fit. Came on when the ignition was turned on.
