I've heard some people wrapping that particular vent with like tin foil, or a heat resistant wrap so it doesn't blow on the back of the gauges.

In process right now got it drying right now With two places for gauges. Nice write up man.

EDIT: pretty much done just need to go get some black paint for it.

I also made it so the gauges will face towards the driver a little. You can tell a little from this pic the one on the right sticks out a tiny bit more and has a little tilt to the driver.
