If you want gauges on the HUD why don't you guys use Autometer cups? That is where I have my boost and fuel pressure gauge and it looks great.

Oh i wonder if that could work in 92-99 or 00-05?
I'd be very curious to know if it would fit in the 92-99.......

I personally don't like them. I'd prefer the OEM look.

We're going to know that very soon. This is the perfect project while I work out problems with pillar pods from two different sources. I'll be doing dremel and fiberglass work anyway, so I think I'm going to order one of these and solve my blindspot problem on the Zilla.

Alright...The GTPs HUD is slightly longer than ours is where our defroster is. Also, the GTP is more of a relaxed slope since there arnt vents there, whereas the bonnevilles is a 75% +/-5 angle being the defroster is angled there to catch that entire portion of the window around the pillar.

With some mild modifications to the guage mount, I dont see a reason why it wouldnt fit. with the vents, a small bolt and nut would suffice instead of drilling into the dash IMO.

Yes. I double checked today cause we finally got the GP driving. The actual HUD houseing for the GTP is larger than that of the bonneville[00+].
