the heater controls are behind the monitor, its on a pivot i rotate the monitor to get to them. good eye az zbum the center gauges are in out of an 85 i believe. i replaced them because a malfuntioning oil pressure gauge. it didnt have the digital gauges but i have one that works. i was going to put it in but decided i liked the needle gauges better. im getting ready to remove the dash and install the turbo gauges though. at this point theres not much of the original car left lol. eventualy i will make the computer controll the heater controlls, starting, doors, and lights. im working on the hardware first. then ill start the software. that might take a while though i hate programming. as for the appearance of the monitor i live in an area where i have trouble finding fabricating supplies. the monitor mount is really a $2.00 plastic clipboard from wal mart. it works for now.heres a pic after i sprayed it with some blue metalic paint. it looks a little better. and one of the heater controls the best i could its a weird angle. but you can easily hit the buttons.

87-89 were all needle gauges. even with a digital dash.

I'm still not understanding the second picture and how you adjust your climate control.

its a little tight hitting a couple of the buttons but i usaully have the tops out anyway the monitor swivels both ways. i would love to get a realtime monitoring setup going or even better real time adjustment. does anyone know where to get the hardware?
