    Grafted into the right hood, it would look ok I guess. It would ahve to be pretty smooth and subtle to work I think.

    Dunno how that would look. My guess is that with a gauge in the hood it would be too hard so see with out it being an eyesore one the hood.

    I've seen cars with them under the cowls in the hood but never an old school hood tach I think it would look out of place

    I've thought about doing this before then decided it just wouldn't be right. Do a HUD, that would be cool.
