Default A-Pillar Gauge Pod & Gauges?

Hey guys! Sooo I was sitting here thinking about what all needs to be done once Kris gets his supercharger in & all & something hit me: I totally forgot about installing a boost gauge! Soo I gotta couple questions here.
1. Which boost gauge brand would you guys recommend?
2. Should we just go ahead & try to find a 3 A-Pillar Gauge Pod & get the boost gauge, trans temp gauge, & air/fuel ratio gauges all at the same time?
3. Where would you find an A-Pillar Gauge Pod for Bonnevilles at???
Thanks for any help & I'm sure more questions will come up about this as I think about it more

You can snap on the universal ones, but they don't look the best.

As for the gauge, glow gauges make some at a good price.

Appearance wise there is nothing aftermarket interior or exterior for the bonneville

Look at the production and sales numbers. You'll probably be less shocked after seeing the comparison of the Monte to Bonne
