    Gauge Ideas?

    Hey everyone I am looking at doing a boost gauge and a/f gauge soon and came across this and wanted to know if anyone knows what gauge this is and how does one go about installing the gauges like this thanks.

    The gauge is cool. But where does he have it hooked too?

    Not sure myself thats why I posted I assume he used some clear plastic with a mirror film by the look of it to replace the mirror from the factoryvto make it show through though hopefully someone will chime in and explain this is what I want to do.

    There is a thread on here where a guy did the same thing. I know the ski was a dark red seadoo, highly modded. I can't remember now what the title was. I'll try to look for it tonight. I believe he did something similar to what you described though. I don't know how it would work in bright sun, may just get a reflection if the light outside the mirror is brighter than the gage numbers.

    Looks good I will keep that in mind for my left mirror for the a/f and find a similar one for the right mirror for my boost gauge.

    That's the one I use, and I think I've been able to waterproof it with enough vinyl tape and silicone, but seems like the best thing is this all-in-one water-resistant MTX-L, if you don't already have an LC-1. Awesome cool having it in the mirrors, though. My boost gauge is super-bright, and would come through a mirror-film well, but the red LC-1 gauge I have would be way too dim.

    Alot of us put them in the mirrors.. there are some block offs where the Gauges mount right in and I think some of us Including myself made our own and installed them. Dynotunes are common and work great. I know there are threads out there that show a variety of set ups do a search. Good luck.
