Default Changing Guage Colors

Are there any companies out there that make a cover so that a guy could change the color of the rims on the guages without haveing to replace the entire guage. I'm not talking about the bezels, just the guage itself.

I sent mine back to Livorsi, they changed them and the lens. Look great.

Me too! Went from white rims to SS. I think the cost was under $10 each a couple yrs ago, plus they go thru the gauge and check it out.

It was $16 each for the small ones, $30 for the tachs and $80 for the speedo.

Price went up a little, still pretty cheap. You don't realize how unclear your lens are until you get new ones.

Thanks for the feedback. Sending them back sounds like the way to go.

Just sent my DataTach prop slip gauge back to livorsi for a rim swap. It's gonna cost $26.00. Mind you this is a 5" gauge!

Hmmm....I just might have to think about doing this???? I figured it would cost more.

Does gaffrig offer the same option? Many of the posts here including mine were referring to livorsi.
