What do you guys think of mounting 3 gauges here on the dashboard? Be honest. And also don't worry about what gauges will be in there, just curious if you think that would look shitty or not. Thanks. Btw ignore the tape and stuff, its just so they stayed there for the pic. And the gauges would be in one triple gauge pod on the dash

IMO if they were the size of the gauge on the left it wouldnt look good, too big. but if the gauges are smaller like the one on the right, it wouldnt look bad. are you mounting them straight up? like having the triple gauge pod parallel with the dash and vents, and having offset gauges facing the driver?

well its gonna be one triple pod, lying flat facing me, probably not off set, if it is off set it will be just a slight amount

so the gauges are going to be set in flat in the pod and the pod is going to be angled facing the driver side? I have problems with things that arent symmetrical so if i was putting a pod in, i would have the pod centered and parallel with the vents, then have the actual gauges in the pod offset so they face the driver side. bc having the whole pod set at an angle on the dash would bother me

well I would more likely have it centered paralell with the vents, I could still read them decently well, it would be in a pod like this
