I have some contact with a company that can lasercut whiteface gauges for any car.
I´m thinking of ordering gauges for my Swift 1.6
I was thinking maybe I could cut down the price a little if more would order at the same time through me. The gauges are made out of 2mm thick plastic which replaces the original face of the gauge. It will have coloured lit numbers and look just like the original gauge except for the colour of the numbers which can be ordered in blue or red.
The gauges will look similar to the picture I post below.
The price would be something like 75$ for a set of four gauges.

Any one interested?

I probobly could. But I would have to have someone scan and measure the original mph gauges when my own are km/h.

I would also like some white gauges with blue lighting :lol: , I have a 1994 GT.

What would the top speed be in KM and how high does the tach go? would it have the 8000 RPM redline like the ones sold on SSGTI?

Keep us posted! :lol:

I would be interested also.
But I have a Geo Metro. It has the smaller numbers/w tach.
I think alot of people would be interested its just that every one is going to have different guages. If we could somehow make this bigger and file through who is who you'd have way better numbers. Just a thought.

for anyone who is interested in custom gauge faces, adam willems at OCC racing can make any color combination you need. these are nice and are the same as the first speedo faces made by previous teamswift member GMC long ago.

you won't have to wait for a group buy, he'll make them to your special order in single units and can supply matching heater control faces, too.

you can reach adam directly at bigbigbear@shaw.ca

Ok... sorry guys I didn´t reply sooner but I´ve had some personal problems I had to sort before I could do anything...
I´ve just contacted a local company who can produce the gauges in any "style" we would want. I haven´t got a price on the finished product yet, but I will take my gauges to him and let him have a look.
I will post any info available as soon as I can.
This does NOT have to be a group buy, but I was thinking maybe we could bring down the price a bit if we order several sets that are similar.
