Here's what I did - maybe it makes sense for your goals too.
I used a 3-gauge panel from a CGT and put it where the stock diff lock
panel is. In there I have VDO Vision gauges (needles light up
red-compliments interior very well) for water temp, oil pressure, and
currently a Autometer Boost gauge (which will likely get moved to
one of these days, making room for something else). For diff locks I
converted to the rotary panel and installed it in the left cubby, using
voltage and oil temp bar graphs. Overall the set up looks prety much
stock-it would look totally stock if not for the Autometer boost gauge.
Sorry no pics to send now....Obviously there are several options....I
seen custom pods on the dash, gauges installe dwhere center fresh vents
or like you say, you could make a panel and put them in the glovebox for
