So I wanted to add a set of 3 gauges to my Regal without making a custom dash set up like I did for my Monte but I wanted something that blended in for more of a factory look and made this set up for under the dash.
I also finished de-wooding my dash bezels.

Under dash radio mount about $10 on Ebay, I made the faceplate out of Lexan and added angled gauge rings and then painted it with GbodyParts matching burgundy paint

I wish I had that kind of imagination. Great work!

Thanks, I am trying to keep the interior looking mostly stock with a few subtle changes.

That nicely done. In my cutlass I took an extra center vent piece and cut it to put gauges in. I have the smallest size (2 1/16?) oil, water, and voltage. You can see 2 out of 3 in this pic.

That looks nice...very OEM looking. Great idea. Had I not installed a console, I would've definitely considered doing that. Actually, I can still add gauges into my breadbox.
