Gauges for a simple build. Suggestions please!

So we're about to start rigging Crusher Destroyer, and I need to get some gauges.

Engine is a carb'd 2.5 200 Merc, we'll be using it for Basic races and tooling around in island waters. Tacho and water pressure are on the list for sure, is there anything else that's vital? We want to keep the wiring and rigging to an absolute minimum, so we'll be making some kind of mechanical trim gauge. I'll be getting a simple GPS/plotter too so that'll take care of speed.

Any ideas where I can get some decent but well priced gauges without resorting to the U.S.?

Thanks for any help!

Paul

Nice one cheers! What gauges are you using Leds? Saw Lee yesterday, he said you're almost ready for launch!

Yeah my co-driver Ben's had a look, he's well impressed! How many gauges are you using? I don't wanna go mad but at the same time don't wanna miss something important when I order them.

I can't seem to find water pressure on the asap site
