    Autometer gauge ??\'s

    What size Autometer Sport-Comp gauges replace the crappy..I mean, factory gauges? I measured the openings, but that really didn't tell me much. Maybe I'm not thinking it all the way through...? I'm not scared (I think...) of doing a little modification if it will make the bigger (2 5/8") ones fit. Also, does anyone make one of those gauge pods that go on the windshield pillar for an '87? And what is so scary about putting a tach where the giant gas gauge is? Is it really that much of a b*tch? Thanks.

    I put a tranny temp gauge in the empty space once and a 2" or maybe it was a 2 1/8" guage fit perfectly.The original lense plate and every thing fit over it and it looked great.All i needed was a hole saw and some luck.
