What size gauges and how many?

Theres a few places that come to mind, but it will be dependent on the actual gauge size

I've got 2 small ones just in front of my gear stick under the ash tray. Pretty good place if you dont really want them seen from the outside. Altho sometimes my gearknob is in the way haha..

I put mine in the centre console. Unfortunatley, there's limited space between gauge pannel and the transmission tunnel.
