Added Gauges, what do you think?

I took out 2 of the AC ducts and installed a volt gauge and a Clock.

You did a good job putting them in there. Looks clean. Is there a reason for the volt gauge and clock?

The battery died on me while she sat over the weekend at the airport for neo reason so this at least lets me monitor and the clock was put in since i lost the one that was in the stock radio and the one on the kenwood is so small. also two gauges sort of even it out lol.

Can you give us the brands of the meter and clock and installation instructions in case someone else wants to do this ? Are they illuminated ? Also where you got them ?

Autometer Z series 2-1/16" size they are illuminated. I used double stick tape to make them big enought to fill in the back of the gauge. I'll post pics to show you how to do it later.

That looks nice, I'd like to get a Voltmeter and Oil Pressure Gauge in there. But I think I'd put them both on the driver side (either side of the wheel).
