Nice set up Brian. I like that set up better than the pillar gauges, just my opinion though. Too many fast and furious Lancers ruined the pillar gauges.

Hi Wallsy,
I just used the cheaper Race Tech gauges from flea-bay. No issues with the gauges, they have been accurate, reliable and were easy to set up. The only regret was getting smoke finish gauges - cause if you wear sunglasses you can see the gauge during the day.
I've also getting long-sighted, so pillar mount wasn't going to work for the closest 2 gauges. Even the ones mounted ahead of the console are too close. When I get round to working on the truck again I will make a mount to fit the 3 overhead gauges over the rear-view mirror.

Along with the other outstanding bits and pieces I have been putting off until the weather gets to cold to stuff around outside.

Whoever owned my F100 before me, had oil, vacuum, temp and other gauges cut into dash binnacle but I need to replace them but don't like them in there.
May put them in a triple dash pod and see what they look like.

Only Voltage up there so far. Will also put temp and oil pressure up there, along with LPG gauge (currently hanging around under the dash), and UHF radio.

'tis a 'glass jobby!

Not sure of the make, guess theree'd be a maker's tag on the inside somewhere, so I'll check when I get to fitting the radio etc.
