Boost gauge

My factory boost gauge works erratically and is seriously inaccurate even when it is working. My clock works fine so I am hesitant to replace it with a gauge. Where do you guys put the gauge if you don't put it in the clock space?

My clock was moved to the lower console. The PO made a new face that covered up the old tape holders. This allowed the 935 style gauge to be installed in the clock hole. It looked factory.

The two knobs for the AC are above the clock. The clock is below and centered, It looked good down there. Makes sense to have the boost gauge in easy view.

Made a mount to replace the ashtray. Not in your direct line of sight, but then I don't look at it all the time. Just often enough to know that nothing has changed with boost and/or fuel ratios. Also made a covenient place to mount the remote radar detector.

Jones, do you have a picture of the set up? And willtel, are those factory gauges with red backgrounds and a space cut out for an electronic boost gauge or are they a whole new setup ?

The car has been apart for about 10+ years so it is a bit rough. It looked MUCH nicer when it was a daily driver. The AC controls are removed but you can see the holes above the clock. The red LED was for the aftermarket alarm.
