Hey guys.
I've got a few guages I need to fit to an xy fairy.
Guages are 5" tacho, 2-1/16" oil pressure and coolant temp.

I want them all on the inside but I don't want to butcher the interior in anyway.
I've heard of people mounting the tacho to the steering column and this is more than likely where I'll mount it. I'm just stuck on where to mount the other 2. I could mount them on the cowl outside but that's been done to death and the cops don't like it.

I was thinking of mounting them to the tacho...

Any ideas and pics are welcome.

Thanks :)

hey, because of the steering column in xw onwards being collapsible in case of an accident, most states will not allow fitment of gauges to the upper column, the gauges stop the column from collapsing.
have a look through street machine magazine and others

here's a pic from the dash of my xr, i mounted a set of autometer gauges behind an old original instrument panel, almost looks factory fitted. the extra gauges i added down below the dash

there's is alot more options out there

Try to make up a bracket that comes off your center console Robber, Maybe a few holes here and there would be alright?
