Lets See your ScanGauges!!!

I've been thinkn about getting one, especially when I get new tires, but I don't know where I would mount it. So I wanna see how/where you guys mounted yours for those of you who have them. Pics plz. I was thinking about mounting it kinda on the left had side of the dash or maybe in the little 1/2 empty thing below my cd player.

Also can you change the backlight colors

EDIT: Cannot remember username...currently searching..

SouthernMudSlinger modded his aftermarket radio bracket to house the scangauge, looks really really good too. He has pics on a thread somewhere on here. You will have to dremel some to get the opening large enough for the scanguage and to clean it up get some plastic blanks to put in there. I plan on doing this soon hopefully

Fx4wannabe, I kinda like it there. but how did you get it to stay there and able to clean your dash? Velcro, also where did you run your wire?? is it out in the open, because IMO I hate loose wires

HAHA.....well....there's two strips of velcro that come with it, and i used those.

I ran the wire up through the column to come out in between the column cover and the gauge bezel.

You know my friend said the same exact thing. Why add a full color display to it? Why make the screen bigger? It will just add to the cost. It works fine the way it is.
