Gauge mount

I've got an idea for a custom gauge mount. I've got manual mirrors, and had the idea to put a gauge right below the adjuster for the mirrors. I've seen people put tweeters there, but has anyone seen a gauge mounted there? If so, do you have any pictures?

Why not just get an A-pillar to mount your gauges?

I would suggest an A pillar mount, or if you want to do some custom work do the gauge surround

Yeah that would be cool though. I don't think I've seen what you are talking about so this might be unique? You plan to fiberglass it?

I had thought about mounting my A/F gauge there. Never did get a spare panel tho so just came up with something else. I'd like to see how your's turns out.

Good luck.
