SEMA_2011.178In celebration of the company’s recent expansion of its custom shop, Auto Meter is offering consumers 10% off purchases of $500 or more. This promotion will last throughout the month of September. All customers have to do is simply use the coupon code STOCKISBORING during checkout to receive their discount.

7Auto Meter specializes in gauge design catering to both the performance and classic automobile markets. Aside from their normal homepage linked above, Auto Meter’s Custom Shop is the company’s website that allows customers to create and purchase their own gauge designs.

The folks over at Auto Meter maintain an impressive collection of gauge styles and as the video above explains, creative license is totally in the consumers hands if they are in fact looking for some one-off instruments. The following is a brief breakdown of some of the categories that Auto Meter offers:

“The Imposter” Design

From the Auto Meter Staff Design series we have the “The Imposter” design. It is a two gauge cluster, both 3-3/8-inches in diameter. One is a dual action gauge featuring a tachometer and speedometer. The second is a quad action displaying oil pressure, water temperature, fuel level, and a voltmeter. This design is bold while maintaining a minimalist aesthetic. The dial face is black, featuring an antique font style in orange. Consumers can even customize the increments between numbers or ticking style as it is commonly referred to. “The Imposter” displays a classy Diamond pattern. The pointer chosen is referred to as Old Tyme.imposter
The “Vintique” Design

Another stunning design comes from a series of Customer Built Gauges. This one is referred to as “Vintique” and everything from the color to the font just hits your eyes with some serious attitude. The template is a standard five gauge design featuring a 3-3/8-inch speedometer and 2-1/16-inch fuel level, voltmeter, oil pressure, and water temp gauges. The dial face is a creamy beige and the font is a character-rich Gothic. The ticking style is Antique and features the same pointer as “The Imposter.” The bezel style is Auto Meter’s Street Rod design and the bezel finish is a beautiful black nickel.

The “Bold Orange” Design

Finally we have a template from Auto Meter’s Bold Series. This is a slick design geared towards performance and easy reads without a busy cluster. The trio of gauges are all 3 3/8 inch dual displays–the first features a tachometer and speedometer, the second provides fuel level and oil pressure, and the third displays water temperature and a voltmeter. Something about the orange dial face makes you want to hit corners and speed down the track. The font style chosen is Patriot and features a Stack ticking style. The pointer is standard and the bezel also features a black nickel finish.kit_1_1320021949986

These are just a couple of the amazing gauge designs that Auto Meter’s Custom Shop offers. The folks at Auto Meter rarely throw sales or promotions so we thought that this one was critical to get out there. Throughout the month of September you can create and purchase some of the cleanest instruments the market has to offer for a rare discounted price. Happy shopping!auto-meter-cusotm-shop-gauges
