Help with fitting my gauges

Hi All,

I am new to the scooby as a car - this is my first and she is wonderful, im loving every minute.

There are a few modification routes i'll be travelling down and as such purchased a number of gauges to keep myself in the know about how the car is running.

The gauges are

Air Fuel Ration
Oil Temperature
Boost

I am not a total mechanical lamen, but i have never gone about wiring in gauges and fititng them.

I ideally need a step by step guide on how to fit them or alternatively a friendly fellow scoob fanatic to lend me a help hand in the midlands area. I've been quoted by some companies in excess of 200 to get them fitted and with a new baby and xmas and bills im dead set against spending that kind of cash on something i cannot see being that hard to someone in the know!!

Any help, links, advice, guidance would be helpful.

Cheers

Steve
