Just cut a plate like Chillin did but for just that area. How is the depth? Will it fit inside the cluster body? How much depth do you have to work with?
I already have a scanner but I share it with my dad. I couldn't pull the oil pressure or water temp out of it but I could ready everything else. I figured that the computer doesn't pass thru that data. besides, I already have the gauge and the tools. To late now to just stop and get a OBD II guage now xpMight I make a suggestion, just get a ScanGuage or similar OBDII gauge display. They make them in so many different shapes and sizes now and they can display a bunch of different vehicle parameters with the only connection being the OBDII port. I've had one for years and its great, it even helped me diagnose a random intermittent issue because I simply put the data I needed to look at on the display so when the issue happened I was ready.
The computer absolutely does pass through water temp, I had it displayed on my ScanGuage when I had my 97 Escort. As for oil pressure, not many vehicles monitor this in the ECU and I never worried about it. Personally, I think the idiot light is good enough for most people. It takes more time for you to notice that the oil pressure gauge is low and to stop the engine than it does for the warning light. Even then, the engine will most likely be trashed by the time you turn it off if you are driving when it happens. But whatever.I already have a scanner but I share it with my dad.

Yeah, I looked around. I didn't trust the grounding or the +12 volt going to it so I got the power,ground, and light signal from the radio. I'm having issues now calibrating to the fuel level unit. I know I have to manually set it but I'm having weird issues where the needle seems to wander around. Yel/Blk for signal and GRN/BLK for ground. Anyone got ideas? "Yes, I had to pull the pump to set full and empty."Don't overheat the circuit board, and use rosin flux (non-corrosive).
