Gauges and holder

Hey guys, I've been thinking about making up a gauge holder in the sunglasses tray using these autometer gauges - oil press, trans temp, boost, and afr on the dash.
I was just wondering if anyone have any advice for me thats not covered in the how-to thread? Also, any other gauge recommendations?

I'm hoping for it to look like this in one way or another

thanks, Roo

Also, can an AFR meter be hooked up to the stock O2 sensor, or does it come with its own?

Speco arent that bad, they do make a Quality Product.. But if youve got a bit more money to spend go out and buy some Autometer products

Also i would look into getting a Water Temp gauge, factory vl indash are not that accurate after 20years.. 2 of my mates upgraded to Water Temp gauges and 1 of there dash's was showing medium readings @ 80deg, the other guy when his needle would sit on 1/4 would be at 80deg.
