Ult,

But, oil and volts? I don't see the point.

Slick placement and execution.....I don't very much like A pillar mounted gauges but the way you've done it looks great.

Ult,

1st thing i ever said about the car when i 1st test drove, was not the power, or the shiftin, or how it feels, or if i liked the interior color...but when i said to my dad 'hey this thing doesnt have oil pressure. 'really?' 'yeah, idiot light...and no voltmeter either'. 2 gauges i like having, and have always had, and hated that this didnt come w/them. so now finally i've broke down and got them. volts to monitor battery/chargin system. and oil pressure b/c i dont wanna rely on an idiot light that just tells me my engine is dead (4psi=your f'd). if 1 of those 2 can alert me to somethin wrong while in the burnout box...then abortin the run and avoidin somethin bad is worth it. same too out on the road.

Well, that makes sense.

I see people with those 2 (or similar) gauges and just figure they wanted a gauge pod and needed to fill it with something. But since yours have proper usage -

Re: More boredom....(gauges phase 2) UPDATE!

here is a shot of my stewart warner guages. i got the led light option and i can see them fine. might be the red lighting drowning out the needles though.
