DIY Dashboards and Gauges tutorials

For many DIY Dashboards and Gauges are the finishing touch for a motion simulator, and there are many options available to build just what you want. SimTools can support gauges where the plugin has incorporated that in the game data: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/list-of-games-supported-by-gamedash.178/
