?Installing an A/F & Volt Guage?

Does anyone know how to install these gauges? I have a A-pillar pod and want to install the guages myself... but I don't even know how to get the wire into the engine bay... or where to hook the wire.

Can someone help or point me into the right direction?

Thanks
Darrell.

For the A/F look a few posts below this one...

Not sure about the Volt guage. But I would assume you can run the wires the same as Dan did it.

I installed voltmeter. Instead of tapping the ignition wire like DanG did (because I just have a thing against cutting/tapping my ignition wire) I used a fuse-tap to the instrument cluster fuse in the fuse box. On the back of the gauge, there are 3 poles, and 2 wires for the bulb. To make my gauges quik-disconnect if I need to remove them, I used butt connectors. I tied the ground wire from the lamp and a ground wire to the ground pole together to one connector, put a connector on the positive lamp lead, and put a wire and connector on the positive lead for the voltmeter. I ran the wire I fuse-tapped to the voltmeter's positive lead, ran a wire from the dimmer switch to the lamp positive lead, and grounded the whole thing on one of the huge torx-head bolts in the door frame area.. There should be instructions in the gauge packaging...
