Default 60mm gauge on steering column pic?

For the love of (insert higher entity here), I give up searching for a picture of a 60mm gauge mounted on the steering column. It is a useless endeavor. So, if anyone can help me out, I'd appreciate it.

Just looking to get a boost gauge for now, but would like to be able to actually read it while driving, so I was looking to squeeze a 60mm Defi BF on there, but can't find a pic of anyone else accomplishing it.

Thanx.

OK, or not.

I guess its just a thing that is not done. If anyone else does find one, please let me know. The measurements seem to indicate that it can be done, and still maintain proper sight of the tach, but without seeing it I'm not risking it.

60mm is pretty big. I don't know how the warning lights on the 06 are, but in the 05s I know that the lights run across the bottom of the tach, and as a result I have a 45mm gauge offset to the left. Double check your line of sight isn't obstructed from anything.

That's what I'm thinking. I took the exact dimensions off of the Defi website for the 52 and 60mm gauges, drew them each in CAD to the exact size, and printed them out, then cut each out. Obviously, its just a 2D representation, and its only what the front of the gauge would look like in my line of sight, and it appears that the 60 isn't really that bad, but without a pic of it I don't trust my logic. It appears that I can either block 0-2000 on the tach, or from like 120+ on the speedo, but like I said, with no pic, I don't trust myself....

I have a Perrin Dual mount and a Blitz BLM Boost gauge which I just installed last week. It does obstruct my fuel gauge but it works for me, no biggie! Now I just need to figure out how to wire in the electrical.

Yeah.... Those seem honkin huge in the cabin.

I'd much rather have 52mm.

Personal preference though. :thumbs-up:

Thank you for the non-input.

I understand that most people do 52mm's, that's why I'm looking for pics & advice on the 60's.

I don't find much value in having a boost gauge that is so small you can only really tell if you're at say 10psi, 15psi, or somewhere vaguely in between those values.

If I'm at 13 psi, I want to be able to see it.

Mods, you can kill this if you want, it's not going anywhere...
