Summit Racing brand gauges?

Any of you familiar with the Summit brand tach and electronic speedometer?
Who makes them? Good quality?

I asked them if the bezel was equal to the one on the Sunpro tach, but they said it wasn't.

I just swapped out the Summit oil pressure, water temp and volt gauges for Autometers in my toy. Not one of the Summit gauges was accurate.

Thank you to you all for your inputs.
I will probably go for an Aurora Gauge kit instead.
(The ones with the easy interchangeable faces.)

I have made a program on my computer, so I can make my own gauge faces.

A bunch of the "Summit" brand stuff is Chinese junk. I'd stay as far away as possible.

I've tried them all you can't beat the Autometer..They've been around since the fifties and look great....

I installed mechanicals in my stock dash bezel. I used the stainless hose for the oil pressure...
