    Gauge install in center vents.

    Took out my center vents this weekend and put my boost gauge and oil pressure gauge there. Cost around $17 for everything. I made the holder out of plexiglass and wrapped in fake but almost real carbon fiber vinyl.Click image for larger version.

    If anyone is interested in how I made it I took plenty of pictures while making it. I'd be more than happy to share them. Think I will put my A/F gauge in my driver side vent next.

    I also removed all the crap from the trunk and added the SPT carbon fiber trunk trim piece. Looks so much cleaner now.

    Why removing all the vents? Trunk looks good and I do like the gauges.. Just don't know if I'd give up my vents

    Yeah, I'm kinda confused by why you'd want to lose the vents... It's a cool idea and all and looks unique, but I'd rather have my vents.

    I don't understand what you mean. Where exactly does the air vent from now?
