Gauge mounts for OBS (1995)

Where in the heck do I find gauge mounts for an OBS? I want to put a cluster on the overhead, and / or maybe another cluster on the top of the dash and maybe then some more under the dash if I feel up to it....but am coming up empty on locating gauge mounts for this truck. I emailed dieselmanor and a few others and they all say the same thing...they have nothing.

I know I am not the only one out there to have seen this, so thanks in advance for your input.

I saw those but wanted to some to go up high and out of the way. I looked over the console one for a newer PSD and it would not work, not sure if there are any that will fit from a dodge or similar.

if anyone knows it would be great...thanks!

I am going to get into it this weekend, I will let you know with what I come up with. Fiberglass is fun, I have some friends who do a lot of work in it but I was really hoping for something I could just drop in and not spend a lot of time on.

I just finished with the tranny so I need to get the temp gauge mounted.

U.S. Gear used to sell gauges and a pod that mounted on top of the coin tray area to the right of the dash. My brother had purchased one for his '97 when it was new. I've never seen one since...

You can mod a SD overhead to work with a little cutting here and there. The dash one that I have seen in the OBS was from dodge and you can get a SD steering pod to work with a little cutting here and there.

I have a overhead 3 gauge mount that attaches to the windshield metal trim piece. It was made by RockingS (Rocky Horn) who posts on TheDieselStop. He made them himself and they look great. He may still be selling these units. they are foam padded fabric covered with cloth that matches the interior and can be used as a single, dual or triple gauge mount.

Guys have posted the on dash two gauge pods for a SD can be trimmed slightly to fit on top of the OBS dash. Banks used to sell these for the 85 type cab style. They may work. Also has been posted the SD single instrument panel mounts can be trimmed to fit fairly well.
