    Great work ! You should post how you did it. Where you installed your sensors, wiring and such.

    I used Dynotune gauges and requested them to be sealed when they made them up , even so I still wanted to keep out as much water as possible. The install wasn"t that difficult just took a bit of planning. I took off the mirror surrounds and mounted the gauges on a polycarbonate backing with carbon overlay. Die grinded out two holes for the gauge backing to go into then sealed the back of the gauges wih a quality silicone.Then mounted the mirror surrounds back on and sealed them from behind aswell. Once that dried the clear flexiglass went on the front and sealed them to the mirror surrounds.The wiring was a bit tricky but I used heat shrink with glue inside for everything and sourced power from the starter relay plug. Went out on the weekend and all was good with no fogging of the glass either so i think it should last a long time. If anyone does want to try this PM me and i can help you through it !!!!
