<div style=": rgb(234, 234, 234); ">My cockpit interior over time has ended up gray with black trim and a green accent, the other night I was trying an old black gauge in the panel to test some clearance issues, when I realized that black gauges now suit the interior better!!!!argghhh!<div style=": rgb(234, 234, 234); ">
<div style=": rgb(234, 234, 234); ">
<div style=": rgb(234, 234, 234); ">What they look like installed:<div style=": rgb(234, 234, 234); ">
<div style=": rgb(234, 234, 234); ">
<div style=": rgb(234, 234, 234); ">Background: These guages were second hand (fuel pressure and fuel level were bought new from vans). The guages were disassembled, reassembled and bench tested by Georgetown Instruments at T74.<div style=": rgb(234, 234, 234); ">
<div style=": rgb(234, 234, 234); ">You might ask why I just don't recolor them black..well..it took dozens of hours to do them..I couldn't face going through that again....a lotof work..<div style=": rgb(234, 234, 234); ">
<div style=": rgb(234, 234, 234); ">fuel press and fuel level guages may not be suitable for everyone, since the faces have specific markings for my set up, but u could change those faces out.<div style=": rgb(234, 234, 234); ">
<div style=": rgb(234, 234, 234); ">Almost forgot... look at the second panel pic..bottom right, there are 2 square cutouts...they are for oil press and oil temp - I have those done in white, too.<div style=": rgb(234, 234, 234); ">
<div style=": rgb(234, 234, 234); ">I would take $600 + shipping as a package for a quick sale. (As u know, just a g-meter is around $360).<div style=": rgb(234, 234, 234); ">
<div style=": rgb(234, 234, 234); ">If they don't sell, I may send the alti back to the shop for a black face refit.

WOw, that's one of the things I really admired about your build, the attention to detail you gave the gauges and how great they looked. I think they look fine with the gray panel and I'd keep them. Maybe if you just darkened the panel a few shades? It would be a shame to lose that look. That would be the real distinction for your plane.
Best regards,
Brad
