Twin Gauges

I think the twin gauge setup on the FPV MKII looks great.
Does anyone now if they are available? as id love to have them in my XR6.
Has anyone done this? Maybe something is available in after market?
I would appreciate any help.

SS inductions does an aftermarket one but they dont look as good as the FPV ones.

Re: Twin Gauges

SS Inductions have a similar Moulding for gauges, but it has ugly screw plugs.

Re: Twin Gauges

I agree the SS Induction gauge holder does not lookas good.
The FPV gauges have a chunky muscle car look.

Re: Twin Gauges

Menace 1 youve got me curious, could you answer some questions for me?
Is it difficult to remove the panel, then install gauges & holder?
Which gauges did you use? Are the faces similar e.g.black with white numbers & red dials?Did you paint the holder to match the XR facia?
