Default Gauges in Glovebox

I am looking to put 2 or 3 gauges in a panel in my glove box so i can either have the glove box open or closed to hide the gauges. I have seen this done on a few different cars but not on any civic. Anyone done this or have any pics of this so i can get an idea on how to mock one up

I wanted to do this at one point too, like the A/F, Volt, and some other non-esential gauges... but I decided not to, because if the gauges are non esentail, why have them in the first place, and if you do need them, make sure you can see them at all times.

An A pillar multi-gauge pod is the best in my oppinion.
It looks good, and it's easy to read.

At one time I know someone made a precut panel the fit in the glove box, but I haven't looked for one in awhile now.

Now if this isn't the pot calling the kettle black :sadface:. You bitched and complained about Francois making useless post, neg repped him, and now you go and do it in someone else's thread? If you angle them right, they are very easy to see in the glove box. I thought about doing this at one time to hide the gauges so everybody and their fucking brother wouldn't try and race me.

yeah ok go ahead and tell your self that. angle them all you want but you still have to turn your head to see them and every time you do that your eyes are off the road longer then if they was at a more logical location. my post wasnt useless it was truth and nothing at all like the truley worthless post franco made, you need to learn the true definition of the kettle calling the pot black so you dont look so silly next time you use it. thanks for the neg rep i returned it right back at yah.

Not when you have a navigator.

Someone has to watch the "other" gauges and man the radar jammers!

Cannonball Car for example

but hiding it in the glove box would be a good way to hide that your car had mods if someone was trying to break in. I was thinking if i went to turbo my car I would of tried to hide the gauges somewhere in teh dash area but make it really stealthy for people that would try to break in.

Couldn't you just mount all of the gauges individually on the back of the glove box and angle them at you? Run the wires under the dash? No need for a panel.

I dont see why you would want to mount them there..What if you had a passenger?The glove box would be in there knees..Its your car.Rock what you want.I think one of the easy was to do it is buy- pre cut a panel from cardboard.Then when your happy with it lay it in fiberglass..From there you can paint it what color you like and all that cool stuff..Good luck with it.
