Just won't happen. You would have to in some way damage the dash. Feel how slippery it is you can't just plonk something on top, it would have to be glued down (which would damage the dash if removed), or screwed down or something to keep it in place. Plus you'd need a hole to feed the wires through.

hey mate,

i got 4 in my ef, oil pressusre, fuel pressure, air fuel ratio. i mounted them under the ash tray, (series2 type ash tray) and boost low down on pillar.

and they look awesome!!! i tried them few different spots and this looked best and attracted less attention from onlookers with sticky fingers!!

i jus used the cheap plastic mount cups from supercheap and mounted them upside down! if u ever take em out you'll never see the screw holes!!!
