My layout is modeled after Porsche layout. It makes sense to have the tach in the middle for visibility to hit the shift points. Be aware of steering wheel and seat location when planning your gauge location. I have a hard time seeing my speedometer between around 70-80 mph due to my height, seat location/height, steering wheel, and gauge. Same problem with the oil temp gauge... The steering wheel will always block something, its a matter of deciding what is least important to see at a glance. I have a loud buzzer connected to my idiot lights for extra insurance (not active when engine is off).

What gauges are you considering?

Not the best pic but should give you the idea of what it looks like..



There are heaps of pics of the car at:

I've dropped the centre section of the dash down in metal to run a head unit, and the three gauges in the dash as well.

Cheers
Alan

Check out my setup. It's a Ghia, but I'm using autometer guages. I was originaly going to go Type 4, so I bought my guages tailered to an aircooled engine. (oil temp, oil press, and CHT.) but left to right

CHT, Tach, Fuel Level, Speedo, (top 2) Boost/Vac, Water Temp, (bottom 2) Oil press, oil temp.

I wasn't sure about using all the guages but I figured I had them, I should just use them. I still might change out the CHT. Like my racing wheel in the last picture?
