Thanks Zimm1978, I really like the lavorsi gauges, but I guess I am curious if the sell a package deal for my boat, or do you have to order each one indeviduly?

If they dont sell them as a package, I have a Livorsi 80mph speedometer (pretty much brand new) that I took off my boat. Excellent condition and I'll sell it cheap since its just sitting in its box in my garage.

Keep in mind you will need sending units also, I am pretty sure the the 280's had VDO gages, different senders than most aftermarket.

Faria gauges came original in my 1994 32 caliber, some stopped working and they replaced them for like super cheap. Don't remember exactly but it was like 6 bucks a gauge or something so low that I would have been stupid not to. They also sell new gauges, not real fancy buy maybe a good bang for the buck.
