Wanting to do up a car with ferrari style. And need to find a few gauges. I know I could probly find some from 80s ferraris, but the Turbo Ferraris are all pretty rare, so where to find a boost gauge?

You might try:

What kind of a car are you doing? You are right, the boost gauge would be hard to come by. You might be better off with a sporty, aftermarket gauge rather than a Ferrari gauge. It would be cheaper anyway. The fuel, oil and temperature gauges run around $120-150 each and that is just for the gauge, the sending unit is separate.

It would be for a second gen RX-7, take out the HVAC controls and make a panel for 3 gauges. The stock gauges are very similar

It would be cool to upgrade the guages, but please don't put guages with the Cavallino in a Mazda. That is being a wanker as an Aussie would say.

Andrew,
I don't see a problem with putting Ferrari gauges in a RX-7, as long as the car remains a Mazda and he doesn't put Ferrari body parts and Emblems on the outside and try to pass it off as a "Replica". :D :D

Actually, I still think an aftermarket gauge would be cheaper, look just as nice and probably be more reliable. There are some real nice aftermarket gauges out there.
