    Need some help guys. Where to put four 60mm gauges. Any ideas

    Well I seem to have run out of room to put things. As you know I like to keep things pretty stock looking. I dont want the gauges on my A pillar, and I dont want them in a pod where the clock goes. The autometer cluster bezel only fits 52mm gauges. I already have something where my clock goes, and my head unit is taking up one din space. I also do not want to loose any heater/ac controls or put them in my glove box. They need to be somewhat in sight also. Any Ideas.

    Here is my old stereo set up that I am going to do again, so the top spot is already taken.

    short of putting them across the top of the cluster (and not being able to see) I have no idea what you are going to do.

    If you go with Defi gauges - you can put them on the a-pillar without a pod (that is if it was the pod you didn't like)

    Three in the second din and one in the side vent to the left of the steering wheel.

    I thought about doing something like rlschmidt (but for my clock instead of gauges), but I doubt 60mm gauges would fit. Looks to me like you want too much.

    The first thing that came to mind would be to find a setup that you could put into you LCD screen, if you have an extra Video input...I just did a search and came up with this from an EVO board...

    4 tires...a motor...a couple doors I think...I'd have to check.

    EcuTek has a thing where you can use an lcd screen to display gauges. You can even make your own template and gauges and import them into the program too. pretty awesome.

    Take out the vents above the stereo, relocate them next to the LCD screen and put the gauges up there. Put the emergency light switch down by your e-brake.

    I had the greddy band holders...you can attach them to ANYTHING in the car. So just kinda pick a spot, and go for it. If it doesent work out, they use 3M tape,so you can move them.

    Having the LCD stick up like that is silly. Put it down where your head unit is, move the head unit to the open din and put your 3 gauges in a defi center gauge pod.
