gauge mounting ideas
« on: January 25, 2014, 01:45:42 PM »
So I'm liking my ultra gauge, and am trying to find a permanent home for it.  For now it's riding the dash, just above the side defroster vent.  If I could make a modified vent to hold it, I think I'd keep it there.  Where does everyone else park a gauge ?  Would it be worthwhile buying a spare vent to possibly mod into a mount ?

Post a interior shot of your car. Sit in the back seat in the middle to get the entire dash and seats.

I'm still trying to find a permanent spot for my boost gauge. Right now its in between the clock and gauge cluster on the dash. I wedged a corner of the base into the clock. Been there for over a month without moving. It doesn't look pretty but I can see it very well when driving.

Ultimately I like the gauge cluster surround with 2 gauge pods. They are just kinda expensive. Another good option is go to a single din radio and put it in the single din pocket.

I have one of these. I thought it would work well being front and center, but with the pods at the bottom of the cluster, actually sitting lower then even the fuel gauge and odometer, the gauges are not easy to read when you are bootin' it !
