hey guys i was looking to get some guages for my AU...vots,water,temp etc

In the AU there is no place to put these guages cept for the pillar on the drivers side...And i dont want to put guages there..looks a bit silly. Has anyone seen or got pics of guages in AU's

Only place i can see doing it is above the center console...would have to mod the dash quite a bit though.

ideas?

it would be easier to upgrade your cluster to one with the factory guages in it, nice and neat and a good project for you too!!!

Put them in the middle above the clock. If it is good enough for FPV in the new gt, I cant see a problem doing it !!
