Quick question about wiring gauges...

Friends getting electronic Volts, Oil Temp, Water Temp and a Tacho gauges for his EL 6 and wants to know where to hook up all the wires. Gay I know, but he's dead set on them.

Anyone can tell where he wires them to? Or pictures of where to connect them? Earth is obviously a screw on the body. But where to connect the +ve and signal wires?

tacho wire to positive on coil
volts to positive on alternator
oil to original oil sender passenger side of engine block i think, might need to install new sender (that should be supplied with guage)
water temp to sensor on front of block

each will most probably have 2 earths
each gauge will also have one wire for light, so tap into the headlight wire behind the switch (take ur cluster out) to find the wire colour look at wiring guide for the el on the forum
then each will just need power from 12v accessories ie cigarette lighter
