The "ultimate" custom gauge install thread

Post pics of the custom installs for additional gauges that you and your sneaky big brains have concocted.

Carry on.

I like the tac, except I prefer the traditional black to the white faces.

cant get any closeup pics of it but in excellence a while ago there was an adriatic blue 914 with a 993 engine swap and was done by patrick motorsports. there is a sheet metal shifter tunnel with gauges mounted in it, i though it looked pretty neat and clean. there are some shots of it in the gallery of the patrick motorsports site.

More TRE work. Since I no longer need the slot to hold CD's, I'm thinking of adding two more gauges, some day. Maybe CHT and wideband A/F.



Normally, the Hotlap display isn't there, and the ash tray is in place, covering the fire pull.

surrounding the guage are super bright leds, yellow for charge and red for oil pressure. they are all slaved off the stock lamps in the other guage.....but i can see these reguardless of where the sun is

i know this is the wrong make and model of car, but I always thought it would be fun to try to put a heads up display in a car like the corvettes offered.

I'd pay up for a nicely made and finished two or three-gauge A-pillar pod. I would like to add some gauges but I use my clock, the center console is teeny, and under the knee bar isn't the most visible location - plus I need the room for, like, my knees.

Picture posting isn't working at the moment, but I have VDO head temp sensor and volt gauges mounted under the ashtray. My tach is the same as Danes, but without the red/green. I have a simple piece of orange tape for redline.

Anyone know of a VDO head temp that would fit the clock hole?
