Who cares!

Do what I do, and buy what you like, and then enjoy it.

Never, never let someone tell you what to buy, just because it is the 'flavor of the day'.
I couldnt agree more!

however i know larry and i think by typing "whats in now" i think he means what is trouble free and easy to maintain. hes one of the good guys, kinda knows his stuff

his stuff will come out nice...if he works hard enough

Feel free to pm me for a quote.

I always like to play devil's advocate.

So my Corvette is built in the USA and my wife's Lexus is built overseas.

My 10 month old Corvette was just towed into the Chevy dealer at 6000 miles because the slave cylinder took a crap and my wife just picked me up in her 2 year old, 26000 mile Lexus......

I think you must have thought I meant the other overseas the one known for quality such as Japan. My bad I was referring to the other as in China. Your Lexus wasn't built in China trust me. Although your slave cylinder sure could have? I do see you wanted to keep some of your money in the USA thats what happens when you buy Livorsi or Autometer gauges. You keep guys like us in jobs. Thank you

Feel free to call Gaffrig !!!!!!!!!!!!! for the best Gauge and price out there !!!
First of all I want to acknowledge that I see you helping people here on OSO everyday and for that I commend you

But now you step into our realm of expertise and well myself as just a distributor of every major marine product in our industry will out of respect to Gaffrig refrain in posting the source and contacts of the Gaffrig gauges manufacture.

Now you may wonder just how I could know this but you see the same overseas source approached us to have gauges made for us. We chose to stick to all american made gauges for our companies.

I suggest you call Mike Shultz and get the facts better yet take a drive over there and take a peek at the manufacturing facility? I will be more than glad to have Mike livorsi post his manufacturing facility pictures on the web. Lets see if you can get those Gaffrig manufacturing facility pictures up here? Hey wasn't there suppose to be some new all Gaffrig store on the East Coast by now?

Dude ,,,sorry ,,i hope your not scott from KE ,,get your story's straight and STOP lieing to sell a product !!!!!!

Thats it ,,,,i am out of this one ,,bash at me or any other as much as u whant ,,but PLEASE don't lie !!!

OH,,,and i forgot ,,how many more colors doea livorsi have over Gaffrig ???
-1- and the custom stuff,,,i believe the 1 color he has more is LIME GREEN ?!

Had to say that ,,sorry.
Your opinions are always valued but the insult to integrity is not. I am recognized by all of my peers as a straight shooter. There would be no need to lie as all I have done is discuss manufacturing locations. Trust me I have never had to lie to sell a part.

I respect your passion for the Gaffrig brand and Mike Shultz. I will tell you a little hint though? Did you notice that Gaffrig doesn't crimp a bezel on to their gauge to change the colors of their gauges? That they glue a colored cover on to their bezel? you know why? I mean really whats it going take video footage for you understand that I'm not making this up.

For the sake of Mike Shultz you should just call me and we could discuss, laugh, argue you name it. But in the end it's not fair for me to tear a guys company a part in the forums to prove a point to a single individual. I hope you can at least respect that,

"Auto Meter Marine Gauges are relatively new. Auto Meter Marine models include
Pro-Comp White, Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite Silver, Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite Chrome Rim,
and Pro-Comp Carbon Fiber.


Auto Meter Marine Gauges include the following features that their Automotive High
Performance counterparts don't:

Sealed Lenses to help prevent moisture and fogging inside the gauges
Non-corrosive internal and external components to withstand harsh marine conditions
Full one-year limited warranty for use in marine applications"
Rex Marine is correct...the lens is sealed. But the back of the gauge is not.

Many, many people did. And quite a few were laughing and pointing.

I still love the car though.....

Hi Larry! The dash is getting done now (red). New gauges, bezels. New carpet. Took off old pinstipe on trailer and had Formula put on it. Installed drive showers. Can't think of any thing more. I'll take pics and post when I'm done.
How about your beast. Can't wait to see it, and take a ride. If you are ordering new gauges (gaffrig) my father-in-law got me a great deal. I'm sure he would you also. H
