I was looking at sandwiching the C mount with 2 soft rubber cards on the rear of the hood vents by the windshield. A couple of screw and nut through the vent slot to secure it as a base. Then use a normal gauge cup with a installed mechanical gauge , like vacuum, boost, etc.

How have others done this. Looking for ideas.

What rattle can paint for cups cause rustoleum fusion flaked off?
the autometer procomp water(liquid filled) will be fine out on the hood as they are sealed 100%)
paint, engine paint.. after painting put in oven at 300* for 30 minutes..
when wife isn't home.. lol
prep and a bake will make a ton of difference
illumination, I use l.e.d's less likely to fail
