Where's your fuel pressure gauge?

So I'm gonna finally get around to installing a fuel pressure gauge. Can't mount it on the pillar because I ordered a pillar pod for my insight, only $29 shipped. So where else can I mount it? Pics would be helpful

The '03-'04 column will bolt right up to the '05+.

I struggled with the same decision Fantom, I ended up going with a quad pod on the pillar and an overhead mount for my Insight. I will probably mount a HPOP gauge on the steering column eventually.

About the same as I would feel getting a face tattoo. Couldn't do it without being drunk out of my mind, and would fully regret it when I finally sobered up

***edit***

I couldn't get the pictures to load.

Agreed. And that's where my fuel pressure gauge is.

Would you mind posting some pics (or sending me some)? I'm on the fence about how it'll look....

Looks like I'm going with the column mount. My insight pillar mount should be here today. I lucked out that it's already black, woohoo!!!
