Default Trim/Tab Indicators

Does anyone know who makes the trim/tab indicators that raise straite out of the dash? I am trying to find a indicator that will allow us to relocate the indicators on Cig. 1's Cafe Racer from the stock location and have them come up out of the dash. I have seen them but do not know were they were or who makes them. Anyone know????

Jon

I saw those at the Maimi show.
I think it was Marine Machine or Stainless Marine that had those.

Cool

Audiofn,
If it is the style that I am thinking about that just has a round cylinder exiting out of the top of the dash with numbers on them.
Most of those are custom made but very easily done. They screw
on the end of a Morse 33-C cable that has a 10/32 thread. You use a Morse clamp to hold the cable.

gafrig makes one and stainless marine makes one the stainless one uses a smaller cable with a no slack spring loaded unit
it has a led light and has colored base that matches most bezel colors

Will you have any old trim indicators that will be left over/replaced with this new setup. I am looking to replace my merc indicators on my Formula 272 as they NEVER work right. was considering fabricating something utilizing encoders or rotational transducers for a trick super accurate setup. but if I can find used mechanical ones I may just go that route.

Rambunctious you will have to ask Cig. 1 about that. I am sure he will not need them after the retro fit. I will go check out the guys you all have mentioned.
