    The pic suckmywake posted does not do the install justice. Ran into him on the river last weekend and the gauge install looks very nice if you can see it in person.

    In case anyone's wondering what to do to get the mirror out ... there's a wingnut on the backside of it. You can get to it by taking the bucket out of the top of the hood and reaching behind the mirror through the hood.

    That's what I was wanting to know more than anything. I think there is enough room for a pair of mirrors in there too.

    Ok this isn't the best pic but you'll get the idea:

    I actually used a piece of hard plastic that I cut to fit inside the mounting for the mirror and removed the mirror. This let me use the same wingnut and swivel mount and allows me to actually change the position of the mirror/guage just like on a unmolested mirror.

    Of course it also required I mount the guage far to the inside so I could keep the whole swivel/wingnut assembly intact. and you are right, there's more than enough room on the outside part of the plastic to affix a little square mirror if I decide at some point I want a mirror over there again.

    If I end up putting a A/F or other guage in the left mirror this is most certainly something i will do...
