Default gauges

I am wanting to get
-Oil Pressure
-Oil temp
-Water temp gauges.
I will probably get a sheet of carbon fiber or aluminum and cut it to size to fit the dual din radio spot, it is a NA.

What are you guys using?

Im getting rid of the radio so I can fit 3 2 5/8" in there (1990 Miata)

I am already using a single pod for the AFR gauge and I dont want to stack anything else in the A-pillar to reduce visibility.

I was thinking on these:
Accutech SMi Single Gauges/Tachs and Panels

or should I go Mechanical:
AccuTech Sportsman Mechanical Gauges

Gauges where the radio goes are useless. If they are out of your line of sight, you will never look at them on track. I used the MiataRoadster 3-gauge A-pillar pod with WB, boost, and oil temp. The a-pillar is the only place where you will legitimately look at them on a regular basis.

What kind of gauges do you use?
Mechanical? Air core or electric step motor gauges?

Mine have an alarm if oil pressure or temp get out of line. Prima donnas don't think they have a fancy enough brand name but they have been flawless for a few years. http://prosportgauges.com/amber-whit...ure-gauge.aspx
