I'm looking for a boost, oil pressure, and oil temp gauge that will accompany the intrument cluster nicely. That is, black backplate, red backlight (I've got red backlighting on all my instruments + switches), 52mm (or 2 1/16"). Importantly, temp should be in Celsius.

Any ideas? I must have looked at 20 different brands by now, nothing looks quite right. Maybe I'm being too much of a stickler for perfection...

That's the point. It's plain looking, like the rest of the interior. The boy-racerish stuff looks out of place in old Volvos.

I agree with you on that one 760T man. :nod: I'm partial to the old Greddy style green face.
