    Pic Request: Illuminated Autometer Gauges

    I've searched and I couldn't find any pictures of the Autometer Sport-Comp Gauges illuminated at night time. I just picked up an OEM Gauge Pod (clock replacement) and am looking to fit it with these gauges but I'd like to see what they look like at night.

    Anyone?

    I have the Sport Comp boost and oil pressure gauges in the Autometer dash bezel. Only the boost gauge is hooked up right now. I'm waiting for warmer weather to install the oil pressure gauge sending unit and wiring. I don't have any pics, but the Sport Comp gauges are almost an exact match to the stock dash colors, right down to the red needle. I know a lot of people don't like the green/red look, but rather than change the color of my dash, I figure I'd go with an affordable gauge line that matches the stock colors. I like that my gauges look like they came from the factory.

    I have no mods to my car, but once I do engine and exhaust mods, I'll install a 3-gauge dash pod. I can get pictures of my setup if you like.

    Some night time pictures would be awesome. I'd like to see how close they are to the stock dash colours and also how bright they are at night.

    Thanks Darrell

    I'll try to get some day/night pics this week. The gauge backlights dim if you connect them to the right circuit (unused pair of wires in the radio wiring harness) and the brightness matches the dash lights pretty well.
