Mounting gauges/attaching hardware

Curious what the thoughts are on mounting the instrument gauges to the console. Specifically tach, pressure, speed, etc. Do you use a sealant when mounting? Something like 4200? Or just tighten.

Re: Lower's FS17

Re: Lower's FS17

GOT IT! It's clear to me now. Thanks for taking the time to help. I know it's simple basic stuff compared to some of the systems you guys have done, but hey you got to start somewhere.
