Dash gauge pod for 86 Econoline

Anyone setup a gauge pod for the top of the dash for an 86 E350 Econoline? I would like to add a tach, vacuum, and transmission temp.

Here is what I did in my '88 E250. It's just a cheap 3 pod from Summit. I cut a piece of an anti-slip mat (the stuff for tool boxes) and put it under the pod to keep it from sliding around while driving.

I've flirted with the left side A Pillar mounts as well as overhead units from Autometer but not yet found anything that won't distract me from the road.

Jayro's set up doesn't look bad at all.
