I just did an RB ashtray pod, with prosport gauges - I put a small piece of aluminum 'L' across the back of all three gauges - holding them tight together made a pretty solid mount.
Then a little black silicone (we call that 'radio glue') around the hole to hold in place.

CA Finally almost there.

I just installed all the wiring and gauges.

Only thing is Racing Beat got a bad batch of Oil Temp/Pres Adaptors so I need to wait for one to be shipped.

Here is a pic. Remember the Firs to readings are off.

THanks Jedi for the awesome how to.

No, it is the zinc part that everything is screwed to. They got a bad batch from the manufacturer.

Guys I need help. I bought nexus gauges and need some help to wire them correctly.
I need to connect one wire to constant +12v source(musst stay powered during engine startup and while ignition switch is off) and one wire to switched +12v source(must stay powered during engine start and crank but turn off when the ignition switch is off).

Thanks

No bud, i didn't even get the stuff yet, but i still can't believe how nice it came out for you. I'll try to emulate yours as best I can. How much did all that cost you though?

no problem trustbuddy, let me know if you decide to do the install and I can email the instructions.


on a side note: Racing Beat and Nordskog should pay me for all the business I've sent them.
