I'm going to start a Kickstarter to get funds for Rev to print an appropriately scaled face for Bob and we'll give it to him for belated Christmas.

I'd give a dollar to that. As long as it had unicorns on it. I'm thinking the rainbow as the speedo curve.

Is it possible to have the turbo going around the needle base, then have the kitty face printed on a button that goes on the needle base itself? So the turbo is stationary on the gauge and the kitty face moves with the needle?

.... if you don't really care about speed with the 4.77 then why are we having this discussion?

the turbo bg and kitty head rotating around with revs would be hilarious

Cause autocross diff speeds will be looked at only on the freeway, track speeds will be looked at...at track speeds. When bigger numbers would be helpful.

Freeway with 4.77 ugh. Cruising at 80 is 4700rpm.

Heh. This has gotten out of hand quickly. It was a fun thing for me to do with some spare time, but superbowl orders were insane and I now have a wait list of 18 gauge sets. I won't have any more time to throw at this without an order.

bbundy, if you would like a set of gauges, please order through my site.

Hope the proofs made some of you giggle.

I seriously would buy one if it had the kitty's face on the needle and the turbo background. I'm going to play with Paint later on your image and see if I can make it work. I'm horrible at this so if someone is better at it and can make my dream come to life, please do.

Bob people have contributed 40 dollars to this cause. If you want then I can send you or rev that money. Otherwise I'd like to send the money back.

I've also contributed about 2 hours of my time at this point. Pretty disappointed to see nothing come of it.

Dude, you don't have to. You've been awesome, Aidan. If nothing comes of this, then nothing comes of it. I'd rather not make something knowing it was going to waste.

Though I really do want Ed's idea of a little turbo kitten on the dial.

I will buy one if it's the art as I've described. Maybe Bob doesn't want it but I do!! Should I put a deposit or something? Gonna go check out the site.

Ohhhh I gotcha. So it's $289 for a full set, but he was doing a crazy awesome deal because we were crowdfunding them for bundy.

Yeah $289 might be just a bit much for where I'm at in the project, sadly :(

I think it was 40 for just the speedo gauge. I don't care about matching or anything.

I still think he was giving a special deal, it'd have to be when you compare to the full kit price. He can't possibly sell a totally custom gauge that way. Anyway, I think I'd rather it be the RPM gauge... so the kitty's head twirls more.

Still need to go play with paint.
