With interest, I will explain a good way to open GL gauges

Post #1 by pistolpete » Fri Jul 12, 2013 3:10 pm

Hi Guys,

If any of you are interested I can put together a good way to open GL gauges and put them back together after rebuilding.

Just let me know here.

I am good with any method that can be used to get into any GL1000 gauge and put it back together with a good seal.
If you all are happy with the results then I'm good.
