File this one under more Vanagon gauge placement ideas. This owner decided to put a couple of gauges in the A/C duct. What a perfect place to have them available, but out of the way. One thing is for sure, these gauges will never overheat.

volts

Still looking for another place to add gauges in your Vanagon? How about right next to the stereo? I like the voltage meter right in front of the stick. All he needs how is another one for the auxiliary battery, or a switch that allows it to go back and forth from the main battery to the auxiliary.

white-cluster

We have seen several Vanagons with white faced gauges, but I have yet to see one with a nice VW logo in the middle. The white face on this van matches the exterior of the van, and provides a nice touch to the theme of blue and white. In addition to the white face cluster, this van has a painted dash that also matches the exterior. Click through for a few more pics.

Need a placement idea for extra gauges in your Vanagon? This hack comes from a 1991 Vanagon Carat listed at pelicanparts.com. This one sports extra VDO water temp, oil pressure, and turbo boost gauges. It’s a little “in your face” but if you really want to see them it works. What do you think? Good placement? Let me know in the comments.

guage-setup

Vanagon owners love gauges. We have already seen several gauge placement ideas, but this gauge setup caught my eye. It comes from a 1982 Vanagon previously owned by Rick Gordon. The mount is big, but aimed up at just the right angle for viewing. I’m not sure it would fit a Vanagon with an automatic transmission due to the shifter, but I like the placement. You can find other gauge ideas here. You might also notice an organizer mounted on the dashboard.

There is a lot to love about this 1990 VW T3 1.9 TDI. Are the wheels crazy or what? Talk about low profile tires. This is the second Vanagon I’ve spotted with orange wheels and they are just the beginning when it comes to this van. Click through for many more pics.

  • I wish I could find more information about this custom Vanagon cluster but there doesn’t seem to be any info available online. This owner created his own set of gauges for his van. Awesome!
