Hello, I wanted to know if there is a way to make the gauge weatherproof? I am looking for a multidisplay gauge to use in my ATV. I am looking at using it with the wideband kit that AeroForce makes and am going to have this all piggybacked to a Data Logger and multiple sensors. Is there any type of rubber grommet to go over the buttons that would be able to press into the face? Is the gauge suited for use in the outdoors?

Thank you for your help!

This is exactly what we're looking into at the moment. I'll keep this thread going as we try things. I know a lot of jet skiers and snow mobilers are also wanting to know this as well.

The best idea so far to do this is a rubber boot or cap over the button, with a flange on the end of the boot that would get sandwiched between the lens and gauge face. I have not been able to find an affordable source for something like this yet. Best so far is $4100 for a mold and 0.10 ea for minimum 5000. If anyone has a better idea I'm all ears.
