Default Where is the best place to mount extra gauges?

I have several SL series cars. I'd like to add various extra gauges - especially the obvious oil pressure gauge. Where would be the best place to mount these things so they look normal. The one I care about at the moment is a 97 SL2, though I'll eventually be adding gauges to a 94 SW and a 2002 SL2. That covers all three generations.

Does anyone have a favorite place for these things where they can be seen easily at a glance?

Default Re: Where is the best place to mount extra gauges?

I mounted mine in the well on the dash. The conversion housing is for a Mustang that originally had a clock or tach. The back of the housing is a teardrop shape and pretty long, so I cut off the back and closed it with a piece of thin wood.
Autometer trim rings enable you to adjust the angle of the gauge.
I think I got everything from Summit Racing.

Best is either that middle spot on top of the dash above the HVAC & Radio or directly in place of the middle 2 HVAC vents (1st gen attached, I think there was one for 2nd gen as well).

Get a double DIN radio kit, use a single DIN radio, and fill the other slot with gauges
