Re: cigerette lighter gauge???

Yeah people have done it. Looks a lot better in a pillar pod IMO. People like slicklude have also put them behind the tinted plastic by the fuel/temp gauge. That looks the most clean out of any place to put them on a fourth gen. Here's a pic of his car from the Member's Rides section:

Re: cigerette lighter gauge???

The cig lighter is a really bad place to put a gauge IMO. The reason people put them on the steering column or on a A pillar pod is becuase your eyes are already in that area, a quick glance and back on the road. The lighter socket is all the way down by the shifter. Also remember it's a very small area, you'd need a very small (like 1" dia) gauge.

Re: cigerette lighter gauge???

if its some stupid gauge like volt or something you dont have to look at constantly go for it. i remember i saw a sleeper crown vic. and it was turboed. and they had the boost gauge mounted in the cigarette lighter place.

Re: cigerette lighter gauge???

theres room for 2 where the slot for your radio is
most people have a dvd screen there becase its like a double slot, but in my car, i have the cd player, i then made a custom slot for 2 gauges, oil temp and battery voltage

il get pics up soon f22 and show you what i mean

djp, that picture of the gauges behind the cluster is cool

a voltage gauge can be run off of an accessory wire or you can hook it up to the battry with a fused wire. reads volts so you can hook it up to the bat.
