    Exclamation Installing Aeroforce scan gauge in the a/c vents?

    Gentlemen!

    I'm considering installing an Aeroforce Interceptor scangauge in my center a/c vent to replace my Nordskog digital A pillar. It's one hell of a nice peice of equipment it seems, and it does way more than all three of my digital ones. however, I believe our center a/c vents accept a 2 5/8 gauge, and the Interceptor is 2 1/16, and they don't make a 2 5/8 version.

    Any ideas how I could mount a 2 1/16 gauge in that vent, perhaps an adapter of some kind? I'm kinda picky, so it's gotta look good. Anyone done this before? Any input would be greatly appreciated please!

    Yeah, that's kinda what I was thinking I might have to do, I know someone else has done this before, trying to get some ideas before I begin fabrication.

    I mounted mine in the small square plate in the console next to the traction control switch. Cut a 2 1/16" hole where the cigarette lighter used to be. Made a real nice installation. Did not need it anyway.

    I like it Sunsetta, well done! did you have a hard time making the TCS switch fit? how did you mount the plate to the console? The GM tab is a nice touch!

    The plastic switch clip from the factory plate is glued to the rear of the metal plate. I was not sure if the GM emblem was too crowded or not.
    I was the first one to ever buy a scan gage for the T/A, and when I got it the programming was not correct. I just put the silver bezel on about 6 months ago. It was ALL black.
