    After ordering one of the ebay "single din gauge pods", getting it, and figuring out its too small and theres no way to expand the holes without completely destroying the stupid thing I went on the hunt for a new one...a better one.


    Well after searching a bit I came across this:

    Honda Civic 1996-1998 Console gauge panel

    Not bad..looks clean...I figured what the hell, I've got an optional EG audio console, its probably close to the size I need, might as well order it and give it a shot

    Today it shows up and I brought it home for a test fit

    Result:

    Like a f'n glove. I *might* have to make 3 small arches in the top mounting bracket for the console, but nothing major (especially w/my wonderful Dremel)



    Oh, if you want one...it was $24+shipping on egauges.com

    Put in the most cluttered gauges you can find :) Autometer D-PIC, O2 sensor, and one of those JC Whitney economy vacuum gauges.

    I'll post pictures when they're in (this weekend?)



    I know neonmike makes them, but for $24 and 3 (business) day arrival I took the chance





    Oh, and theres an oil pressure, air/fuel, and volt gauge going in there

    why?

    a/f guages are worthless. get a wideband.
    volt meter? why? are you doing audio comps?

    oil pressure is good to know though :)

    I have a wideband



    volt was just to fill in the 3rd hole


    I don't need a water temp, theres one in the dash, or an oil temp, I'm not runnig a turbo, or a boost, same reason as the oil temp...that leaves volt
