I'm asking members for their ideas/feedback on whether there would be any interest/advantage to offering a "gauge visor" as an option when purchasing a new Unobtainium 2.0 panel. There would obviously be a small additional charge for the visor but it would be shipped with the panel so there would be no additional shipping costs.



The visor fits seamlessly with the contours of the panel and shade the gauges from the sun and prevent "reflecting" on the windshield at night. Simple to install and the look pretty good, , ,




Installing an Oil Gauge and a Voltmeter seem to be the most popular, ,They looks REALLY good too, , , ,

I think the Visor would be a good option to offer.
Another good option to offer would be to have the panel "Pre-drilled" to fit standard gauges, not everybody has a hole-saw set in their toolbox.

Those gauges (above) are pretty sharp... at $65 (volts) and $97 (oil) a little spendy, but these are feature-laden and worth it.

Here's links to them.

Do you have that visor that can be copied?

I've only spoken to Jim, the owner of Airtech Fabricators in Glendale AZ about possibly buying a dozen or so, , , and include them in the purchase of the Unobtainium 2.0 panel for those folks who might want to buy one without paying for the extra shipping/handling. Jim is checking his inventory and materials and I should know more in a few days.

I just got off the phone with Jim of Airtech Fabricators about getting some visors. I've pre-paid for a small number of visors and he says they'll be shipped tomorrow (3/15/19). They should arrive early next week.


He offers them at just under $19+ (shipping included), but if the visor is included with the purchase of one of the Unobtainium 2.0 panels, the cost will be $16.50 for the visor.
Anyone who is interested in the visor ALONE, the cost will be the same as Airtech Fabricators charges.
