    +a bajillion.

    I love the clean-ness of vent gauges. Which gauge is that?
    Question: Once finished, does the vent retain it's ...moveability? (Sorry, brain fart. Couldn't think of the right word) Or is it stuck in one position...

    I was going to ask the same question? And would cold or hot air flowing right into the back of the gauge effect it in anyway?

    I cut half of the tube out and stuffed it with foam. No air goes to that vent. The one on top above it is a different tube so i still get air through that one. Yes it still moves around.

    It would be cool to leave the vent tube hooked up, and to just build a cone shield for the back of the gauge that deflects the air around the gauge instead of on it.

    Great, I'd encourage you to do that if you have the time. Many people would appreciate it I'm sure. Thanks.
