No photoshop trickery. This is exactly what my camera shows, sized down and watermarked. Lights are the same on both lamps.

Two plain glass lenses, two revlimiter Lenses, and no glass over the oil gauge opening.

This shows the performance quite well under the most harsh conditions. While there is some reflection, you can still see the scale and numbers on the right side gauges easily. The left side is totally blown out.

Graphs are awesome. Cliff notes on the above: blue and purple are reflected by the revlimiter Lenses.

AEM's stock plexi vs a revlimiter Lens. Note how blown out and totally white the top right corner is on the AEM and how the light source reflection extends past the needle center. The same angle and lighting on the bottom shot still lets you see the gauge and scale below.

AEM uses the same lens size for all of their 52mm gauges. The revlimiter Lenses should work on all of them, analog or digital.


revlimiter Gauges - Version Fallen
The lenses are installed in this shot and no reflection is present. I'm not using a polarizer or anything to minimize reflections, however the studio lighting conditions are ideal for the photo.


revlimiter Lenses comparison
Here's as close to a direct comparison as I can get without taking my dash apart a few times. This is the opposite of the studio shot in ideal lighting conditions.

The top shot was done driving around in the daylight. The bottom was done parked in a dark garage with the door open. The bottom garage shot is actually a lot more contrasty lighting conditions and is making the AR lenses work harder and look worse. It's the most difficult lighting I could figure out.

On the top shot, you can just barely see any detail in the tach. It's very blown out. The bottom shot shows some blowout, but you can still see details. But the interesting stuff is happening in the speedometer and oil gauge. You can see my face and the steering wheel reflected like a mirror. That's totally absent from the anti-reflective lenses. You notice this more in real life. Instead of being able to see yourself in the gauges, all you see is a shadowy outline.


Installation for KGW cluster


revlimiter.net Store - Door Straps
Remove the gauge cluster and move to a clean area.

Remove the four corner capscrews. Mine were 2mm. Pull the metal KGW cluster away from the plastic Mazda unit.


revlimiter.net Store - lenses
Flip the cluster over and remove the jeweled indicator lights. They should be finger tight. Pliers might help.


revlimiter.net Store - lenses
Separate the front and back plates. Carefully set the stock glass to the side.


revlimiter.net Store - lenses
Flip the back plate over again. You'll place the lenses in the recessed spaces.


revlimiter.net Store - lenses
Peel the blue protective backing off both sides of the lenses and place them in the cluster. Then rebuild the cluster in the reverse order.

If you need to clean finger or glove prints off the lenses, you can use any cleaner that's safe for anti-reflective eyeglasses.
