power and illumination for gauges
what's the best/easiest way to give a gauge it's power and illumination source?
is there a way to tap into a fuse and what would i need?
if taping into a wire, what's the best way?
just lookin for some answers to this, since i've seen some setups on here that are nice thumbsup

The way I went is to the parking lamp wires. i also heard that the best way and the easiest way to do it is to the cig lighter.

Make sure you use t-taps for a clean connection. Cigarette lighter always works good. If you get a wiring diagram for your car you can find a bunch of power sources that work well.
