Gauge Placement Like Cobra

Well I loveee the sleeper look, and a pillar gauges don't exactly exemplify that. I was thinking about Fiberglassing one or two gauges onto the top of the steering column, liek the cobra (Cobra only has boost though). Anyone tried it or care to use their photoshop skills on it?

See for some reason I hate that boost gauge on the STIs I think it just doesn't flow with the car's interior

Just did the red light mod . It flows now hehe. I know what you are saying though but I actually like the placement because a quick glance down and i can see my boost and RPM's at the same time. i love how the speedo is on the right. I never know how fast I am going sometimes

You should put a boost gauge in the coin tray hole. That is stealth.

That kinda looks like overkill. I think just the boost gauge fitted in the coin tray aea would look nice and suttle.
