"Allen, the thing I like most about the FS 488 is the $1000’s of dollars it saved me in discovering issues I would never have discovered--especially at night and in rainy weather; all which make it difficult to see the car. We purchased 2 and they paid for themselves the very 1st weekend. Thanks so much for your awesome product." Steve Morici - Pre-owned Sales Manager - DCH Toyota Simi Valley

The FS 488 is the oldest generation of our Paint Thickness Gauges, and it contains many new improvements. The lighted, ice blue display has numerals that are over .5 inches tall, making it much easier to read especially when you are in a hurry or on a cloudy, rainy day. The FS 488 comes with a 2 year replacement warranty. The bottom line is simple. If you need the best quality meter at a discounted price, this is the paint meter for you.

The Lighted Display in the FS 488 is set apart from all other competitive paint meters for Car Dealers. If you can't see the paint meter display, what good is it? In a year or two, paint meters without a lighted display will be obsolete.You wouldn't buy a cell phone without a lighted keypad, why consider a paint meter without a lighted display?
