Oscar is torn apart and getting a makeover in the next 2 weeks, in which I'll be adding brew and boiler gauges along with some other mods.

The boiler one is easy and I've seen plenty of pictures and info on the internet, but digging up pictures for the brew gauge has been much more difficult.  

Anybody see any good tutorials for this?

The temp gauge goes on the steam side and the brew gauge goes in the brew circuit, preferred place is not on the hot side. I don't know of a guid anyplace.

I'm adding an adjustable OPV so I think I'll tap in between that an the boiler.  I went out and bought separate gauges, but maybe I should buy one dual-gauge instead.  Less cutting into the housing.  

I think I'm doing all these mods because I want to learn how to do it rather than because the Oscar needs it.
