My buddy Robert bought me an Autometer A/F Gauge (Ultra-Lite Series) for Christmas. I really only wanted this one gauge and didn't really care for any of the single gauge pods that are available to buy. Sooooo, I decided to remove my power accessory plug, drill two holes to put the threads from the gauge through, use the thumb screws to hold it in place, and there you go. It was really easy to install and I think it looks clean and not out of place, in my opinion. I don't think anyone has tried mounting a gauge like this.

I first removed the acc plug. The gauge comes with threads attached to the back. I drilled with a small pilot hole first and then ended with a 3/16 bit. Pushed the threads all the way through and then used the supplied thumb screws to hold it in place. It's not going anywhere. I can see the gauge very well. I'll get some pics from the side to show how it sticks out.

Looks real clean.
I'm thinking of drilling right next to that plug. If I can figure out a way to install one.

How could I run an A/F meter with a O2 sim. installed on my car (anyone) ?

can you fit a large drink on that side? I need to figure out somewhere to mount my oil pressure gauge.
