My Volt Meter Solution

Well, Not much to say. It's a SunPro Meter. Designed for a car, Modded for a Bike. I liked the thought & love the look. I painted to match my guage cases.[/COLOR] Thanks.
The red is out dated. If you simply buy the case, everything is made to go together. And should have flawless operation. As usual I was trying to be as cheep as possible. Sometimes it's worth it to spend a little extra to avoid headaches! lol

Thanks for the compliment, Please do use the Idea. Copying is a great form of flattery!

That meter cost me $15 (autozone). Pretty reasonable I think. Although they do make a bullet style case for it to sit into & I would suggest something like that to cover the back side. My windshield hides the back of mine. So I didn't care to spend the extra cash. But the case would elliminate drilling the actual meters case & save the dissasemble hassle.

Will rain get inside the gauge? I like the idea, but it needs to be water proof.
