can this tach be installed in metal glove box ? Do you supply wiring and equip to hold unit up to back of unit

Asked by: Anonymous
Thank you for your question. This only comes with just the gauge. You would need a bracket to keep the gauge mounted however we do not sell a 5” gauge mount. You would also need to supply your own wiring for the gauge since that is not included as well.
