I've recently installed 3 AutoMeter Ultra-Light gauges in my 08 sedan. Thought I'd share a couple of pics.

Yeah, the gas pedal is a weird shape and I had to make my own brackets to get that one to fit.

Well, I picked up the gauges on eBay - they're all brand new and all three ran about $400. The wide band a/f monitor being the biggest chunk of that.

The installation wasn't hard, once I figured out how to get the wires from the engine bay into the cabin. I'll explain how I installed each later - I have to get ready for work right now.

did you have to cut a hole in the dash to fit that gauge or was there something there that you popped out and replaced it with the gauge?

I had to cut that hole! Talk about nervous. But I experimented first with some other plastic I had laying around to make sure, as best I could, that things were going to work out. I used a 2" hole saw (a good one) worked up my courage and drilled the hole.

Because of the curve of the dash I also made an angle bracket for it. I got lucky and everything fits perfectly.

I'm working on a write-up on how I installed all three gauges that should be ready and posted today. How I made the angle brackets, mounted the gauges, got the wires from the engine bay to the cabin and the wiring connections will be in there.
