Default Aftermarket Tach - Where did you install them?

I still have my stock tach and am getting an aftermarket one from Autometer. (To read RPMs by the hundreds) Any NHRA or "Street Legal" rules/regulations on where I can or cannot mount these? Would this still be classified as "stock appearing"? I have the NHRA book but it is not clear about guages. If you have pics where you mounted your tach, let me see them! (This will be without a shift light or RPM recorder.)

I have mine bolted on the right side of the trim ring, but were I do redo it I would put the tach on the steering column.

Old pic of Formy (front cage has been redone):

I welded a tab on my cage and mounted it below my switch panel.

do you run an NHRA class? if not then don't worry so much about what the rule book says other than safety items

I don't have a photo but I took off the drivers window visor and screwed the bracket into an existing hole, it hung from there and was out of the way and very easy to see without taking your eye off the road.
