Red or yellow Vacuum cap should be fine. Do I get a prize?? :D


Awesome! I didn't even know there were extra unused caps. That makes it even easier/safer.

I'm gonna try that tonight and see if I can get it working. Your prize is pending my success...

That's an interesting gauge mount. Where did you get it?


It's really nothing special... just a $15 universal mount from glowshift: https://www.glowshiftdirect.com/universal-single-gauge-swivel-dashboard-pod/


It includes a little rubber grommet to hold the gauge in there securely. I like the location and adjustability, but I might trim 1/4" off the edge of the  circle where it hangs over the A-pillar so it looks more flush. I didn't want to do anything very invasive since I don't plan on adding any other gauges. The only problem is that the 2-sided tape provided doesn't stick to that textured surface very well... it falls off. I will have to try another tape.


Here is a video of it in action:
