I don't like the pillar guages because too many punks would think they're boost guages or something and wanna race. When they're in the A/C controls location mounted flat, you can't read them very well.

I did mine here.

Like I said, I really dislike the location unless you angle them and glass a contoured shape in there like I did in my tape player location. Flat against the A/C panel sucks because they end up pointed at your elbow which makes them hard to read.

I like that red first gen dash up there. Those are high enough that being flat wouldn't matter. Nice. :)

I wouldn't recommend the pillar, I tried a two gauge pillar pod and I could never get all the hoses to sit nicely behind it, and it kinda looked just tacked on there(probably because it was) If you can get a blazer consol or something (because I hear those cassette consols are hard to find) and do what 98ss did I think you will be happy.
