Does anyone have info/pics of gauges installed in the opening of the AC control panel----NOT the vent opening-- on a 69 camaro? I am going to install a gen4 with their rotary controls mounted elsewhere, freeing up the need for the old AC control panel. Seems like a great place for gauges--easy to look at while driving, instead of looking down at the console.
Thanks

Come on, fellow members, I have never seen it in pictures, but it seems like a great idea. Has anyone put gauges in the AC control panel hole?

Don't think opening is large enough to put 4 gauges in it. At least not 2 1/8" gauges

Would the type of gauges from the 69 firebird work? They're a sawtooth configuration.

How about speedo and tach in main ipc holes, fuel in the center clock location, and oil, coolant, and volts in the AC panel slot

Yes my buddy bought a 69 with the gauges in the control panel opening, he just changed it back to a control panel and gauges under the dash.

Just my opinion, but it looked like a rig job. The gauge panel was a perfect fit, looked like it was made for there but again, looked hokey. I wish I had taken a pic of it now.

And for the record I am a fan of doing things a little differently but that just didn't work for me. JMO
