I'm wanting to mount some 2 1/16" Auto Meter gauges in the center a/c vents in my '99 Trans Am.
I remember seeing a kit that would angle them toward the driver, so you could see them better than just mounting them straight in the vents.
Anyone know of this?
Thanks

Sorry no, but I love the looks of the gauges in those center vents!

i has the 2-1/16"i n the AC vents but looked a little to small for me and i replaced them with the 2-5/8" they fit perfect with no modifications.

I just assumed they were 2 1/16".
Thanks for the info.
I'll check more into it.

the 2-1/16" is below the 2-5/8",they make a adapter ring to fit the 2-1/16" in the AC vents, but the 2-5/8" fits perfect, ,just remove the vent rings and the 2-5/8" will slide tightly in place and then put the support bars on the back to keep the set in place.

Thanks, I'm leaning toward the ES Series, but the only ones I found are 2 1/16".
I'm looking for a adapter that angles the gauges toward the driver.

my trans temp is in the far left vent. 2 5/8 fits nice and snug.
