most people just use the Autometer gauge cups. they're not bonnet specific or anything, you can mount them anywhere you want - on your mom, bonnet, inside the car, under the car, where ever.

there not going to be sealed. there has to be a hole at the back for the wiring to come out.
generally you put an o-ring around the gauge and then push it into the cup.
and you need to fork out the big dollars for decent brand ones if your using them outside, such as the above mentioned Autometer ones so that they don't go rusty and turn to s**t.
