Default Door Vent A/F Gauge Install

Previously, I did some research on installing a a/f gauge I had laying around into the door vent (Request: DIY Oil Pressure Gauge Install)

Just wanted to post that I have finished my install (for the time being, I may still add the vent silver ring). If you all want more information on how to do it and the wiring, I believe I have more pictures at home I could post up.

Thats kinda cool.

However, I love that air vent too much.

You will still get air by the looks of it, just slightly restricted.

I had the gauge laying around from a previous car, so figured I may as well use it.

You still get air flow, but it is redirected up, so I don't feel the air much at all from there. I'm sure if you put a cone on the back of the gauge it would help, and you could redirect it better, but this project has already pushed my levels of caring to the extreme.
