    Factory looking Boost gauge or Voltmeter

    I've seached high and low and can't seem to find what im after. I need either a Boost or Voltmeter for my centre console. Ideally i'd like a smoked face item as my console will be black, but i'm wanting it to light up the factory yelloy orange colour. Can any one help me?

    Thanks

    Ive got an Auto Gauge one in mine, White face, Silver surround and Orange needle so I painted my needles on my dials to match. It lights up yellow/orange but I might change it to white as my dials now light up white.

    Heres a pic mate. Auto Gauge are not the best but I only bought it because it was cheap and it sort of matches my dials.

    Is that not the type that lights up seven colours? If its single colour i could be tempted by one of those. Ideally i wanted a smoked face with oem colour lighting but this sort of idea is my 2nd option.

    Na it lights up a yellow/orange but I'm sure it could be changed to white etc with a bulb. Im not really a fan of the coloured ones.

    That looks quite sweet. It seems easy enuff to find white faced gauges that light up oem but harder to find smoked/stealth style that light up the yellowy colour

    I think you'll struggle with the smoked/stealth style matey but I have been proven wrong before!!
