I used to have a small tach hung under the dash and bought the wires out through the cig.lighter hole.Better to get the dials out of a Camaro with tach,they go straight in.Only a tad fiddly.

Rubberman2003,check out my gallery,I think the hanging tach looks like an add on.Badly done,so I got the sport gauges and to make it different made a cover for the gauges out of aluminum,
and painted it crinkle black.I drilled small holes for the turn
singnal lights and left out the V. meter and temp as I have
Autometer for those functions.

on top of the dash i would drill a hole right behind where you want it. what do you care, you will have to drill holes in the dash to mount the tach, so what's one more. either way you just wrecked your dash pad. you just have to make sure your screws sink into something more than dash padding material
