You got the same problem I had. I am a college kid, quite poor, so I went the cheap way. I got a Sunpro tach (2-5/8 inch) for 40 bucks. Installed it myself, drilled into the door to save money on a gauge pod. Links to some pics below. Good luck, hope to see pics of urs when done.
Thanks...That is a clean install. Is it easy to see it where it is located? Not sure if I am ready to cut up a car I have only had for a couple of weeks though...I was thinking maybe a pillar gauge that way I can replace the entire part and not destroy something. Please more pics and ideas.
I can see it well enough, its a short glance away. And I thought about pillars, but i never liked the look of them, not as clean as being sunk in i think. Im not sure if u can get pillars for a 2-5/8 inch gauge, maybe u can, i just dont know.
