12v to 6v help

Sounds good to me. Need a break from electrical to work on something I understand. Called my local parts store (the one that actually tries to find things they don't stock) and they found several listings for Instrument Cluster Voltage Regualtors, $50. Do you have a particular preference -make/year/model? Or are they all the same? Unless I can build it for less than half of that, I'm better off buying one.
Assume this would replace the voltage reducer I have, and I would run both temp and gas gauge off of it.
Using the schematic you show above, Where would I hook in my amp gauge?
Seems like it would have to be in one of the two red lines, not where the idiot light is. (FYI. My horn relay is a small aftermaket one that is wired thru a fused circuit, powered only when the switch is on, not part of any original harness, so I can't go there, but I get the idea).
