    Check LMC.com for the dash pad, they have OEM and NON OEM ones.

    As far as gauges, I started a post on teh same thing. It was titled "Has anyone done this with gauges" or something like that. But here is what I came up with that turned out great.

    Its a Ford Mustang Dash Pod (94-03 model) It is made by Autometer. I had to file on the bottom a lil bit to get it flush sitting. No holes needed to be drilled. The wires and mounting plate all fit thru the center speaker holes.

    Here is where my water temp and oil press gauges are

    Eventually im goin to take out all the stock gauges and put this in that location, but until then, this is where they stay.

    Some other options are from autometer. They actually have other dash pods. There is a 3 gauge pod that is for Dodge trucks that could be made to fit. The plastic in the pod is sandable and filable, so its easy to handfit. Jus check summit for dash pods.

    I jus seen this on SUmmit Racing website, It wasnt on there b4, I may have gotten this one

    Here is the dodge one from Summit
