Re: gauges

A/F guages are worthless unless you spend 400+ for a good gauge. With that said... I would probably buy an A pillar gauge mount from autometer (I buy the bolt on version so you can place it where ever you wish rather than the prefaved overlay (complete version) speed of sound (the company) may also have a nice version (google them)

the wires will run down the crack of the door (the weather stripping pulls back) and under the dash though the hole located there (currently a rubber groumet is there just pull it out to feed the wires though) from there you can make the connections for the senders as needed.

For the gauge's lights you can splice them into the rear defroster (very close depending on year) or use the light switch (i had mine ran over to the dash to the rear defroster for both lights and gauge power) the power wire can be ran to the rear defroster or anywhere else as well. PUT A FUSE ON THE LINE!

The ground wires can be ran together to a good ground~

Use a wire tester to determine which wires you want to run to where. Use a sodering iron if at all possible to ensure you have great connections, you can use a wire stripper that pulls the coating off of the wire with out cutting the wire so you dont mess up the stock wire.
