When it comes to mounting additional gauges in your car there are many ways that enthusiasts often go about it, from utilising off the shelf, aftermarket gauge pods, often screwed into dash or A-Pillar trim panels or by retrofiting them, often very crudely into the factory consoles, air vents and wherever else there is some free realestate. This can be very time consuming and often the resulting fit is less than glamorous...
Well, if you're the owner of a VL Commodore, looking to fit up some additional gauges you're in luck. As somewhat of a neat freak, Boss man Dario down at DCR Auto Electrics has put together a neat, well thought out solution for VL owners, putting together these custom bolt-in gauge panels that allow fitment of up to three gauges, quickly, easily and most important neatly into the factory lower console.
Mounting snugly into the factory recess via the two panel original trim screws, these gauge panels make great use of this available space and once painted up, or trimmed like the example posted above, the piece looks almost factory.
DCR Auto Electrics keep a number of these in stock in various different layouts to suit both 2-5/8" and 2-1/16" gauge types, priced at $140. So if you're in the market, why not drop by the workshop at 136 Auburn St, Wollongong or call on (02) 4227 2731.
