I was looking for the same thing but I gave up and went pillar. It can look nice if done well:



I also like the below the cig lighter pair that you can order from someone on here. I dont have a pic of them, but they are a bit low and out of the way down there.

Other than that I have seen the cellphone holder adapted to house a boost gauge.

Also the 3 gauge din can be used if you swap-out your stock stereo to a 1 din unit.

There are some who have done a single din radio set up with a 3 gauge setup filling in the rest of the space above the radio. It was a members avatar on here and I know ERP had a similar setup as well.

Also another member made a dual pod that replaced the flip out ashtray.

I got it from :http://42draftdesigns.com/categories...ts/tgp_mk4.htm
along with gauges/LEDs. Cosmetically, it's an almost identical fit.

PoisionBeef has my old A-Piller setup, next time I think I'm going to try to fab up something for the middle of the dash like A12 has. Except, more refined like the Scoobies have.

The headlight switch location which has been mentioned, the Radio DIN setup which has been mentioned, and the ashtray has been mentioned. The glove box? Thats about the only place left.
