    If you don't want to spend the $$$, then stock gauges from a junkyard is the way to go. If you don't mind spending a bit, find some autometers on e-bay and do this...

    I second the e-bay suggestion. Look for autometer or autogauge. They're both great quality.

    Use the 'Search' on this forum and you'll find lots of stuff on gauges. Rene has some really nice pics of his somewhere. JC Whitney have them.
