Instead of drilling another hole in the dash I was thinking of mounting the voltage meter under the dash and plugging my new depth guage in that hole. What do you think? It would look nice and how often do you really look at the volt. meter anyway and what for?
Opinions? Or would you do it in the hour meter hole or just drill another hole?

I removed my clock and put the depth guage there.

I don't have a clock or I would. I have a 91 prostar.
What would you do?

I moved my hour meter and attached it to the bottom of the dash with a single guage mount I bought at an autoparts store...will try to get pix....this was on my 92PS which should be very similar to your 1991

That's what I was thinking. Who pays any attention to the hr. meter anyway? Besides when to change the oil. I just don't like drilling holes in the dash. Thanks for the help.

Move the hour meter under the dash or mount it to the engine. I like checking volts and engine temp to look for problems.

Removed the volt gauge in the '91 and put the depth gauge there.
If he wants to put a volt gauge back, it will more than likely go where the battery is, AND/OR in the engine compartment.

It could be a good excuse for perfect pass. You get a built in voltage meter!

Here's where I relocated my hour meter....I bought a cheap $3 guage holder and used the two existing dash screws to mount it.
