Default Gaffrig gauges peeling. Any ideas?

I have a set of Gaffrig Platinum series monster gauges. They are 15 monthes old and they are peeling like crazy. Some of them are bubbling around the lip and others have the powder coating peeling in sheets. I called to check the warranty but it's 12 monthes. Do I have an alternative to replaceing 21 gauges? Can they be re powdercoated?

LubeJobs42,
Call the factory. Ask for Mike and tell him the problem. They have a great reputation for taking care of their customers. Let us know what happens.

I sent back (3)gauges last winter to Livorsi for new lenses, as all (3)were having spider cracks on lense face. These were not stress cracks. However,all (3)were top mounted gauges, that received the most exposure to the sun. This was in a northern boat with less than 200 hours on it. Gauges work great and look good. Livorsi put new lenses in the gauges....of course for a price. It wasn't a lot of cash. But, for the price of the gauges, I would have expected them to correct the problem, and stand behind their product for what was obviously a manufacturing defect.
