Dash Gauge Mount

Someone posted a pic of a 3 gauge mount they made, I can't find it anywhere?
Anyone?

Which location are you using - the center-dash spot right by the shifter or something else. You can still have that pod which is in my garage if you want it. I'll be around this weekend if we want to meet & swap stuff. I can't make it all the way down to LI, but I'll be in Stamford on Sunday evening to catch the Acela.

I'm going to use a grey plastic radio holder bracket with a VDO din cut out 3 gauge insert. Someone here did a write up on doing this. Pretty sure it was under the VDO Vision gauge thread. Pendy posted some pictures of three gauges installed where the clock, lighter etc are located.

I've done both, I'm just having trouble finding pix right now. I like the center dash location first because its easy to relocate the NAS emergency flasher to the wiper cover, move 12v sockets to the console, and replace the clock with round.

On yeastie, I needed a place for 2 fuel gauges, but didn't want to mess with the center dash spot. I just got a 2-gauge DIN plate from egauges.com (the same time I bought some vision gauges) and mounted them in the "radio pod."

If you are just running 3 extra gauges, I like the spot in the lower dash, just bear in mind that the shifter will block the view of the center spot when you are driving down the road. That's where I put my clock.

Jim, Sunday might work. Let me know what time.
Would you have a place to put all the Ac parts?
I will take the Pod.


I thought I saw something the other day, that they made themselves? Gauges in a pretty simple look piece of aluminium, acroos the dash cutout.

My wife is dropping me off at the Stamford train station and then going home - so the AC parts could just go in there. I'll find the pod for you when I get home. Its got speakers and stuff with it, since its designed to be a radio retrofit kit.

The thing I used in the lower dash was just a piece of stainless with 3 holes in it that I bought from a UK vendor. I forget who. It was pretty thick, like 3mm.
