Hey Bullitt. I am going to do the same thing. I am going to pick up a mini guage with idiot lights built in with a white face from Dime City and a british headlight bucket they sell. I bought one for my honda and its a touch longer than the stock Bonnie. Use a hole say, cut the whole and plop the guage in. Use the guage mounting screws on the back and bend a piece of aluminum bar to pinch it in the bucket. Shouldn't be hard at all.
Are you're going to use some sort of thick gasket to account for the compound curve of the bucket or reshape things/paint it?
No need for the trip odometer, I suppose since you'll not be able to access it from outside the bucket. Maybe an electronic speedo would be better than the cable driven one? --Rich
