Gauge White Plastic Case

Postby Elanthrapist » Fri 17.12.2021, 20:58

Hello all,
have just removed my boost gauge to find that the white plastic casing has a gaping crack in it. Looks like some one in the past has maybe dropped it.
My question is does anyone have a scrap or damaged gauge they would part with, really only need the white plastic case.
Postage to the UK would be easier please, although I do live in France. Many thanks in advance, Best regards, George.

Just a suggestion George... if the gauge still works, why not glue the plastic with superglue or seal the gap with white mastic?

Then wrap some fibreglass tissue round the outside + brush over a thin coat of resin.
Works a treat on plastic parts that are not on show.
