Can I get some suggestions for aftermarket triple gauge package that would fit almost 'seamlessly' into the center console cubby hole of the 71 Camaro? We are replacing the motor with a fresh one, and would like to keep a better eye on it vital signs than the 'dummy' lights would be able to give us. Maybe even a driver side window post (I forget what you call that) gauge package could work. Show me some pics of your gauge setup?

I've got to make a smaller panel. Due to a broken capillary tube on my Stewart Warner mechanical oil pressure gauge I changed it for a Auto Meter LED electric cause I'm into my spark plugs reading and always touching that area and it won't harm an electric wire like it did my tube.


Lights on

Maybe get a gauge bezel and put desired gauges in?
Or above where the plastic meets the metal a 3 gauge cluster?
Dunno...
I have a 3 under the radio. Hard to see. Never look at them.

I just used an Auto Meter 3 gauge panel and their 2/16" gauges, mechanical oil pressure, water temp, and trans temp.

Not the best pic, but it fits well.

Any more pictures or options?
I went with the period-correct black and white Stewart Warner gauges mounted where the 67 Camaros were (amp-oil press-water temp).

I like it to look like it would in 1970. The factory console gauges were a joke IMHO.
