Curiosity question that never really crossed my mind. I always had a vision of what I wanted my '68 camaro to look like. One part were the gauges located on the cowl. I presently have my Nitros, fuel pressure and oil pressure gauges mounted outside but it never crossed my mind on the durability of these gauges outside in the weather. I am close to running the car on the street. It will only be a weekend car but the chances of rain are good here in Florida. The gauges are all Autometer and I was wondering has anyone else mounted their gauges outside on any type vehicle and how did they hold up. Did I make a mistake........

Just asked the same question this morning. Check out James67RS post. He says that he has some brand called Gaffrigs. I asked him if this company is online and he has not yet answered. If you find out please let me know. I love that look.

I have my Autometer fuel pressure gauge on my cowl panel and have never had any troubles.
I know others that had the old Sun gauges on the outside and other then cleaning the chrome cup, that seemed to be the only trouble.

How do you guys mount the gauges to the cowl? I would like to mount a fuel pressure gauge there, but didn't want to mess up my new paint.
