revlimiter Gauges - Modified to your own specifications.
- Don't like my choice of zero position for the tach and speedometer? Change it! Zero can be rotated to any
- Standard needle rotation (zero position) uses press-through needle stoppers on most designs. If you change the
zero position, you'll receive a set of glue-on needle stoppers to use with your gauges.
- Move the tach redline up or down. Grow it or shrink it. Or add more range to the tach and speedo if you like. They
don't stop working till about 10mm counter-clockwise from the zero mark.
- Change the font style used on the gauges. You must have the font file to send me if you make this request.
- Change the color of the face to something other than black. Want white? No problem! Want to match a color?
That takes a bit of time to accomplish, but should be doable.
- Want a different logo on the tach than is present on the gauges you like? Sweet! I've got nearly every
logo Mazda has ever done. And if I don't have it, I can draw it up for you.
- Price: Modifications are charged on a time-required basis. Usually these requests will add $40-80 to
the base price of the gauges. It just depends on how much you want done and how many hours it will take me.
NOTE: These are OLD gauges!
All of the gauges you see here are made with my older Gen2 and Gen2.5 materials and printers. These are no longer
being produced. The designs below are just to show what's possible. I cannot re-make these gauges exactly as seen.
Warbird at Tiffany's
The request was for a standard Warbird gauge set, but with a Tiffany blue tachometer. I said "sure!" I never expected
the results to be quite this awesome.
The order was for white lighting. The new owner was on the fence about what color to use. He was interested in OEM bulbs and
blue bulb covers. This is the result. In my humble opinion, it's stunning. I tried white LEDs and it wasn't nearly this cool
A first - a set of Stirling gauges with a different zero rotation. The customer wanted them rotated to 6 o'clock
for his car, Jazz. A very simple request, but it totally changed the feel of these gauges.
Blue condoms over OEM bulbs. That's how the gauges were ordered. The lighting is a bit dim, but the blue sure is pretty.
This was a new one for me - Stirling in creme. Trying to get the grey arcs to look right and be the right color was 99%
of the work. In my not-humble opinion, they turned out awesome.
The owner wanted to keep the stock warning lights. A stock rotation later and they're hidden behind the creme face nicely.
A set of gauges meant to go in a rallycross Miata. When you're bouncing around, exact needle position isn't really so important,
in my humble opinion. You just want to know if you're in or near the red zone. So, each gauge got a VERY obvious red wedge.
On the fuel gauge, being IN the red (at race weight) isn't necessarily a bad thing.
A favorite car of mine is the Lancia Delta Integrale. I borrowed the zero position directly from that car's cluster. Something
kinda awesome about the 3:00 speedo and the 9:00 tach.
I've never designed a gauge set with the tick marks on the small gauges extending all the way to the bezel. When I was drawing
these up, it seemed an obvious choice. I'm really happy with how they turned out.
Amber lighting at night. The red zones have ghosted red lighting and any nearby numbers (260, E, 7 and 8) lit in red. Kinda
hard to photograph, but they look great in person.
Here's one that's not often modified - OEM+. The owner wanted the tach range extended to handle his IRTB engine's new
capabilities. He also wanted some revlimiter.net livery on the tach. A small mod to the fuel gauge rounded out the order.
Maybe my favorite tach ever.
White/clear lighting with white LEDs. About as evenly lit as can be imagined.
This set of gauges was inspired by a pair of watches. The customer wanted something all in greyscale. Dark grey tach,
black numbers, and some contrasting small gauges. I also received his cluster for installation.
When there's not a lot of contrast between the face and numbers, my job becomes very hard. Adding the light stroke around
the numbers and major scale marks helped. Getting them the right shade of grey was not easy. Three test sets were made.
Even the small gauges are greyscale. White numbers and tick marks were too bright. I dimmed them to a matching grey.
Lighting was to be done with white OEM bulbs. The glow they give really suits these gauges. Very refined. Thanks for
the order Chris!
This was an order for a very minimal set of Warbird gauges with a 9:00/3:00 rotation. It went though many revisions
and ended up being a modified Version Zero. The car they're going in is rebuilt from a previous wreck, rising from
the ashes. Hence, the name Phee.
A custom phoenix logo on the tach.
The phoenix ignites at night. The red tach face really makes it look to be on fire.
Changing the background color on the gauges with dark grey artwork (Stirling and Barcode) is not easy. It usually
comes out looking quite strange. But what about just deleting the grey bars?
I chose LE red for the background. It's deep and contrasty and gorgeous.
I had white LEDs in my cluster, so I lit the gauges with them. The crisp look really works.
A set of custom gauges designed around the My Little Pony character Rarity. The gauges were to be classy, minimal,
and not as in-your-face as the MLP or Doge gauges. So, I imagined what my favorite pony would design if she made
gauges instead of dresses.
The one request was to have a picture of Rarity on the tach somewhere. Rotating the gauges to the Prototipo 1:30 zero
provided a very logical spot for Rarity to stand.
Let sleeping kitties lie.
The cutie mark fuel gauge. Subtle? Perhaps not, but it is rather classy.
Rarity-purple lighting for the gauges. I lit it up with white LEDs. Truly fabulous.
Superlative Beauty / Model 34
I had a request for a vintage-looking gauge set. The customer was interested in a few different designs, but we zeroed
in on the Model 36 gauges after a bit of discussion. Nearly everything about them was changed, at least in a small way.
The results speak for themselves.
4 o'clock tach and speedo. Expanded scale to be outside the numbers rather than inside. And some text in the middle zone ala
the GT40 gauges.
Superlative Beauty was the customer's idea.
Amber lighting for that vintage look.
Ever heard of the Catfish? They take MX-5 guts and drivetrain and put it in a small body. I'd not heard of one before
receiving this order. I was smitten. I might need one.
The customer really liked the dark sea foam gauges I'd done before. This is another version of that color. The lighting
conditions make the gauges look a lot brighter than they are in reality.
White lighting with OEM bulbs.
My buddy Chris ordered these to go with his newly restored vintage Prototipo steering wheel. He had the NB2 creme gauges
and wanted to keep the same background color. I went to work.
The white needles don't really work, but that's not a problem. Chris has some factory red ones to install. Still, the white
and creme have enough contrast to be able to see where the needle is pointing.
BRG reen km/h scale to go with the BRG paint.
Amber lighting. I'm pretty proud of the lighting here. It's about as even as I've ever been able to achieve with NB gauges.
My buddy Chase wanted to replace his stock set of Stirling gauges with something special for his car, Pandora. He still
wanted the same style, but with it kicked up a notch or two. Chase came up with the logo and dancing girl. I had
the idea for the 9 o'clock rotation. We're both very pleased with the results.
Purple lighting with white LEDs.
Model 36 in Black
Doesn't look very custom at first, but since the Model 36 gauges usually come in cream, this is indeed a special
color. This is something I always wanted to see, but just never made a test set for. This set turned out
A EUNOS logo in place of the 1936 Mazda logo and the optional redline round out the tach.
I've never lit up a set of amber gauges with LED bulbs before. This is the result.
A modified Version Sunstorm set. I dubbed this "Version Sunburn." I don't know about the rest of you, but my skin
goes from speedometer to tach in less than an hour...
The red tach replaced the original yellow. The other gauges were turned white with red numbers. Not a complex
request, but a couple hours work to get everything perfect. Changing a gauge from black to white is one of the most
There's a large amount of light leak out the needle centers, but that's common with white gauges. The lighting
on this set surprised me with how even it was.
My buddy (Legendary on the forums) ordered this set. At first glance they seem to be just a GT-40 set with a 6 o'clock
rotation. Upon closer inspection you can see how many changes there really are.
The Oh Shit gas gauge is getting pretty popular.
km/h scale on both the inside and outside.
A nice pairing for the fuel gauge.
Amber lighting with white LEDs behind. Just the thing to finish off these gauges.
MX-8 in Grey
A couple small mods on this MX-8 set - a grey tachometer face and a funny fuel gauge.
Prime is impressed.
Outlined numbers on the grey tach. A few simple mods really went a long way in making these gauges unique.
A small change to this gauge set - red tick marks instead of black. The owner also had me extend the marks
above the small numbers (a lovely change). Lastly, the lighting method was changed to make light shine through the red
rather than ghost around it.
White lighting with bare OEM incandescent bulbs. No covers on the bulbs.
I had a pair of orders for custom rotations on gauges that don't often get ordered with modifications. I thought
I'd pop both in the test cluster to share. The first is this set of 6 o'clock GT40 gauges. Pointing the needle
down really pops with these.
Retro looks with a modern feel.
Revolver gauges ordered with a 9 o'clock zero position. I was skeptical at first, but it really came together.
The owner requested the tach in hundreds. A last minute addition was the Mazda logo centered in the upper half.
I originally designed the Warbird gauges to have yellow numbers. My favorite old aircraft had black and yellow
gauges and I wanted them too. When I made up a test set to install in Sharka, the white letters on my KG Works
gauge cluster clashed with the yellow. I decided to go with white for the production Warbird gauges. When I had a customer order the gauge with yellow text, I just had to
take some pix.
There's just something awesome about that yellow text. I wish this set had worked in my own car. I hope the new owner
loves these as much as I do.
I got an order for a set of GT-40 in either red or purple. I mocked up the gauges and purple was the winner. But it
had to be a specific shade - the same purple as the Crown Royal bag on the new owner's shift boot.
It was almost harder to photograph these than to actually make them. Purple is damn hard for a camera to get right. Trust me,
this is the exact color of the Crown Royal purple baggy.
White/clear lighting with white LEDs.
White/clear lighting with OEM bulbs and red condoms installed.
A set of gauges for my buddy Jared (Leatherface on the forums). He had all of these ideas put together and even
supplied the logo. I just made it a reality. It turned out SO cool.
Ghosted lighting on the tach, standard lighting on the other four gauges.
The Yellow Tach
It looks like a lot of work, but it really was quite simple. The customer wanted the tach and speedometer rotated to 6
o'clock and a yellow tach. When it came out of my plotter, my eyes bugged out.
White/clear lighting with amber bulb covers were ordered, so I lit them up with that same combo. Looks pretty sweet.
And here it is with white LEDs (superbrightleds.com wHP5 bulbs). LOVE this!
GT-40 in Dark Sea-foam
Slightly modified GT-40 gauges in a dark sea-foam green.
The owner wanted the tach in thousands instead of hundreds. In place of the vintage Mazda logo, he wanted his name.
It turned out great!
Matching an exact color is not easy, but this one came off without a hitch. The green is dark, yet not too saturated.
Lighting is with white LEDs (superbrightleds.com wHP5 bulbs) and OEM Green lighting gel baked in.
Blood Red Warbird
Another simple request. "Warbirds in red." The customer was not specific as to which red. I did them up in this deep shade
which is a perfect match for the 93LE interior. Not bad if I say so myself.
White/clear lighting SuperBrightLEDs.com wHP5 bulbs installed.
Version 1002 in BRG
These were ordered with a ton of modifications. The customer wanted something minimal and uncluttered
that would complement his 1991 BRG Roadster.
Every gauge was scrutinized and simplified.
I've done a few sets in British Racing Green. This one turned out awesome.
This is the OEM green with factory bulbs installed. It is a perfect match for the stock lighting
Another set of gauges for a Catfish! This time, it was based off Version Alpha. The customer drew the logo himself (which
looks insane, I was blown away). A rotation on the tach and some other small mods completed the look.
White lighting was chosen. I used OEM bulbs to in these test photos. They seem to bring out some of the vintage charm
in the Alpha design.
GT40 + Yellow
A set of GT-40 gauges with a yellow tach for a friend in Italy. Yes, the gauges read in Imperial units. That's how the owner
wanted them! "More nostalgic," he said. And I agree!
Note the fog lamp indicator on the speedometer.
I created a whole new light diffuser for these gauges. It's now standard on all NB gauge designs. There are far fewer hot spots
and bright areas, even over a constant arc like the tach shows.
Warbird in Orange
This was a custom order of Version Warbird in safety orange.
Getting just the right orange that was dark enough to have contrast with the white numbers, yet bright enough to look "orange"
was not an easy task.
The orange was also difficult to photograph. Very hard to capture the right shade. The color changes slightly depending on
the viewing angle and light hitting the gauges.
They were ordered with white/clear lighting. This is how they look with white LEDs firing behind. A lot of the orange
illuminates thanks to light coming from the needles, but the result is pretty unique. The owner of these gauges
seems very happy with them.
