I like my FE instrumentation is the left corner of the windshield, so I don't have to move my eyes off the road much to see it. No pictures, but I just kinda wedged mine in.

I put my FE instrumentation in front of the dash, but so I can still see the oil pressure light. Don't care about the shift light so much. Velcro on the bottom:

sitting on top of my steering column like dcb's except my instrument panel is in the center of the dash, not directly in front of me.

  • driving style
  • aerodynamics
  • tires
  • weight reduction
  • engine maintenance

Mine is on top of the instrument cluster. It's the first time I've ever stuck anything to the dash. But there it sits, the most visible instrument. (Used the supplied velcro, and I pull it off the dash when parked so it doesn't bake in the sun.)
