Mounting Aftermaket Gauges

Looking for some ideas on mounting my air/fuel ratio gauge.

I am trying to avoid the typical gauge pods.

I considered relocating the heat&air controls to the glove box and getting some aluminum and mounting the gauge there.

Will consider most ideas. I wanna stay low key but be able to easily read the gauge(s).

Considering the fact that you don't have AC or anything really in your car, relocating the HVAC controls would be pretty easy, I think.

Small update. I have been slowly working towards relocating the hvac controls to the glove box. I have extended the wires for the fan control, but not the vent selector. I cut a slot in the bottom of the glove boox just big enough to allow for the plugs to pass through. Mounting in the glove box is still in the air, but I have some ideas in mind.

I will be adding 3 gauges to the old HVAC control location above the radio.

I decided to extend the wires and put my heat&air controls in the glove box. Made a little wood holder for the controls. It's not perfect but it will do.

^ That is kinda how i mounted my nitrous pressure gauge in my old cb7 .I housed it in a sunpro pod and mounted it in a tilted position . If people can't see it the better off you are. Hey Keith are you going to carpet over the wood or leave it like that ? It would look sick if you stained it.

I plan to leave it as is. That has stain on it in the last pic. It's not the look I wanted, but it's what I had at the house.

Gauge setup is almost complete. Just gotta fine tune the aluminum fitment to the opening on the dash trim.

As nice as the cupholder idea looks... I don't see it being very practical. Isn't the point of A pillar pods so you have a more direct line of sight with the road and gauges? I personally don't see it being very safe to look down just to know what your temp's/psi are.

I see what you mean, but I don't want mine showing where people can see them when they pull up next to me. Where the heat & air controls are is still pretty high in the dash, esp with as low as my s2000 seats are.

Thanks, but that just puts them too low for my tastes, thats just right above the cup holder and below my radio.

Well you can alway put the radio on the bottom and the gauges on top just below the a/c controls.just a thought

I do however love the way you did it. Looks clean.

Finally got around to installing and wiring my gauges, along with finishing the HVAC controls in the glove box.

Original setup (in my dd accord) vs. my new setup

Still need to put my headunit back in.

and working...
