Does anyone know what are the specs of the clock or dash opening?
I want to install rpm gauge inside the clock area and maybe put the clock somehwere in the center console.
You need to take your clock out and measure the hole in the dash for diameter and depth. I don't think there is a good place for one in the center console. It's pretty much tight for space. If you mean the lower between the seat console, where the power window switches are, there is space between the window switches but I don't think the depth of the space is very much. You would be using an electronic gauge anyway so the depth may not be an issue. Cars with cruise control (114 coupe) have the cruise control switch installed between the power window switches...
But I don't think that would be a very attractive place for it...
