just educational -not smack down

well new holland IL must be a complete vacume of intel , since you work on fordcars all day and know more than anyone, you should also know that 'wet' gauges are very prevellant in many automotive arenas : off road racing, rally cars, drag racing, nostalgic cars
summit parts sells 'wet'gauges for many applications = under hood fuel pressure gauges, nostalgic old timey style tachs and speedos
the wet portion makes the gauge more sustainable in high vibration enviroments
now standard street cars arent considered high vibration but these 'super-tuner' specials might fall into that realm if enough motor work is done, but why would ford waste those dollars on 'wet'gauges when they could sell aftermarket for triple prices
then the real question "why does a ford mechanic not know any of this??"
so arrogance covers ignorance = sounds like your a government worker for obummer
