    Very nice! Now that is something actually useful to use that blank space for. I might just do this myself now!

    I had to trim a lot of material from the back of the trim piece and modify the mounting hardware quite a bit to make it work, just a heads up. Think I determined I could have just shortened the mounting ring instead of making all the cuts I did to it, but I'm pretty sure you'll still need to trim around where it comes through. The gauge is also larger than the hole, so you'll need to enlarge that first (think I have pics in this thread).

    If you can find a smaller one, or one with a smaller housing/mounting mechanism, it'd be a lot more straight-forward.
