I think Jim is looking for the meter that matches the instruments green color. They had oil pressure & volt meter. I believe Pete Bartelli did the gauge cluster in his Carrera. There is a pic on the forum somewhere.

Brad, I'll give them a try. I think they only have AMP meters. Tom is right, I want to match the OIL temp, and OIL pressure Green VDO gauges. There is nothing on Google like that. ..........................Jim.

Jim, since they can change the faces on tachs, maybe they can do the same with another type of volt gauge?
