    When ordering Autometer custom gauges to match existing Autometer gauges be real careful as they don't seem to care if they get it right and your only recourse is to order it again and pay for it again and hope they get it right. Probably cheaper to order a new set of gauges from a different supplier

    I'm more amazed that he's been on the hamb since 2006 and only posted 8 times.

    Not enough details given for us to get on your side.

    For example: why order custom gauges to match what I assume are standard Autometer gauges? Order standard ones to match (?)

    Just got a set of custom shop gauges from autometer and am very impressed with quality and attention to detail. Will probably do it again, for the money not much more than stock autometer gauges.

    Same here. Back when I was racing I used only Autometer. Repairs/service was quick, usually overnight, and reasonable.. I was just thinking about sending them an old broken 8000 rpm tach. It's new but from the seventies. Somehow got face glass smashed in the box. :eek:

    Autometer is some of the most accurate gauges you can buy. I believe there made in the Us.

    Why would you order custom gauges & expect them to match their standard gauges?
    Sound like you are the one who screwed up.
     
  13. Got them in our wagon but I got them as a set and they all match. HRP

    Wouldn't matching old Autometer's be the easiest custom Autometer ever?????
    Really?!? Custom new gauges to match old ones? Sounds like an easy money maker to me.
