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.

box-gauges

This 1982 Vanagon apparently has a V8 inside, but these switches caught my eye. I wish I had a picture that was slightly zoomed out. It looks like they just build a box on the dash to house their gauges and switches. Nice job.

Vanagon owners love additional gauges, and we all have different ideas about where they should go. We’ve posted a few Vanagon gauge placement ideas before, but here is another one. These gauges are angled, and look pretty good from the driver’s seat, but click through to see how they look from above. You may not like it.

cockpit-console

Check out this custom console for the Vanagon cockpit. It is full of gauges, switches, and lights, and is perfect for the Vanagon enthusiast. Although the picture is cut off, it looks like the console contains a cup holder at the bottom. One of the downsides of this kind of console is it limits the ability to mount the Vanagon from the side door, but it sure looks cool.

Check out this custom cluster courtesy of North Westy. The white face with red dial is gorgeous. They created this cluster for a custom TDI conversion and it brings a new, modern feel to the van. They even included a gauge pod for the ash try. Click through for the night view.

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.

oil-temp-gauges-vanagon

As most Vanagon owners know, the Vanagon could use a few more gauges. Here is another Vanagon gauge placement idea. Samba user, tencentlife, posted this picture of oil pressure and temperature gauges installed just below the dash under the stereo. The installation looks perfect, just be sure to measure correctly before you cut the holes.

insane-vanagon-cockpit

Vanagon owners are famous for wanting more gauges and switches in the cockpit of their Vanagon. We have covered several different ways to add gauges to the Vanagon dashboard, but if you’re looking for something over the top this is it. Whoever created this cockpit is leaving nothing behind. He is obviously a fan of gauges and switches, not to mention CB radios and police scanners. He also installed a wood steering wheel to boot!
