Colors don't match on ISSPRO

Just finished installing guages - well partway! Diesel Manor didn't include the boost T-fitting so I will call them tommorow. Question is that the Boost guage doesn't light up like the others. I have the Enhanced Visibility white face with green glow. Installed per the instructions with backlights going to the dimmer switch. All three guages dimm properly just the boost guage is more white. Pyro and Trans are just a backlite green and the boost you can see a white ring. More white and less green. Was going to call ISSPRO tommorow just wondering if any suggestions or similiar experiences.

Oh yeah, Boost is a 0 to 40 PSI - Like it matters!

It is my understanding that the Isspro's use a green cover that goes over the bulbs. Maybe they forgot to include this cover for the one gauge, but included it for the other two?

As mentioned above, it is likely the bulb cover (affectionately known in Engineering as "bulb condoms"). Please pull the bulb out and see if it is missing, and if it fell off inside the gauge. My guess is it is missing altogether. Please let me know if that is the case and we will get you a replacement.

Regards,
Michael Pliska
