Default WTB guage mounts for dash

2 types I am looking for. the sleek (slim version) 3 guage version that goes over the 2 center AC vents.

and also a dual guage mount for the area behind the steering wheel.
either 2 guages mounted to left side of curve. or 1 guage on each side. i think they are called ears or ear mounts

I would advise against the gauges over the steering column, my boost gauge is mounted there and blocks the tachometer slightly.

i didnt want ones for the steering column, but the dashboard above the face plate was where i wanted the gauge mounts for.

the plastic that curves up over the speedometer. i've seen the mounts at one of the miata company stores before but i forget which one.

although i would like a shift light to put right between the tach and the speedometer, above the center of the steering column

I got just what you're looking for. I put my gauges on the hood that covers the instrument cluster. The wideband is on the left and the boost on the right. I made the buckets out of PVC but you could probably purchase some pre-made ones if you don't feel like making something from scratch. The thing I like about this setup is that the gauges are easy to see without turning your head unlike A/C vent mount and are low profile enough to not create any larger of a blind spot like a pillar mounted units.Turbo020.jpg?t=1254783121

that is exactly what i was looking for. i DID find a website that sells them premade up to 2 guages per corner.........i was thinking maybe 2 on left and 1 on right. keep them both low and have dark guages or dim red/blue guages so i dont get blinded.

i just happend to find that site years ago when i didnt have a turbo, and i forgot what it was called. haha

wanna make me some guage mounts?
