I just recently purchased some 2 5\8(oil and water )autometer gauges. Where would you mount them and can you show me your pictures of them. Thanks

Thanks for the quick reply. The guy at the perf shop said they make a pod for the a-
pillar, but i think the 2 5\8 would be too big there. I havent installed them yet, just getting ideas on where to put them. Thanks.

I've got some 2 & 1/16'' guages on the way and will be making a plate to put them where the old heater controls used to be.

I plan on using a 3 guage pod that goes on the A piller. I have a 69. Another location is to mount then where the A/C vent would be in the dash pad.

I made a two gauge panel, covered it in cherrywood contact paper and mounted two 2 1/16" gauges where the radio goes.

Which shifter and shifter boot/plate is that ???

I just bought a Hurst Comp shifter and need a shifter boot etc. Hurst has one thats like 3 inches wide and another thats 7 inches !!!!! The hole is only 3x5 inches.......

Is that the larger one with it bent slightly down the side of the tunnel ????

Gary has a great idea about putting them where the A/C vent in the dash pad is. Someone here has done it and shown pictures of the finished product. I can't remember who it is though. It looks great. But you'd obviously have to have an A/C dashpad first. There's already a rectangular hole in the dash panel itself on all 69's. You just need to fabricate something to hold/mount the gauges in.

I'm thinking of using my non-A/C dashpad, cut and form holes that fit tightly around 2 or 3 gauges, fabbing up a mounting plate for the gauges to the dash panel, and having them look like they're form-fit right into the dashpad.
