    Ill give you a bump, there are a few posts out there on this board but I'll let the people speak
    I will tell you that everything is done here in Detroit, not overseas. We have a 5-year warranty and are currently in our 10th year producing instrumentation
    Our dials are also printed in-house, assembly and engineering is right here in Detroit.
    NVU's primary business is OE, Military and Commercial instruments, so the aftermarket benefits from the technology we develop for use in other markets

    I really like the look of the 1940 series and having the military bezels.

    I like what you guys are doing. Made in USA, good job.

    I have a 1940 series tach. I like it. One small bit of feedback for you though Mark. At night with the lights on the gauge isn't as clear and clean to look at as my SW speedo. Not sure if it's the type of lamp, location of the lamp, the glass quality or what.

    It wouldn't stop me using more of your stuff if I had the need, just something I noticed recently on my first night drive in my roadster.

    I bought a set of the 4 in 1 gauges. Only in KPH. I have been very happy with the setup so far.

    Everything was in the box and clear instructions made for an easy install.

    I wish they would make the Sun gauges again.. They were the best looking gauges I ever saw...
