The gauge is a $18 volt meter off ebay, hooked up to an aux output on my LC-1. I just set the aux output to 1 volt at 10:1 and 2 volts at 20:1. It works great, like a .25 sec lag, but it does what I need great. Also, if you get a volt gauge off ebay, make sure it can use a 12 volt input for power.

that **** is bright, needs a pot resistor to dim. I kinda want to do the same, I'd rather have a digital readout.
