    Default Outside Air Temp gauge?

    My '61 Colt did not have any kind of OAT gauge in it when I bought it. I have been using a small digital temp gauge that I stuck down thru a small opening near the front of my seats. I would like to upgrade to a better gauge, so was wondering what others here are using? Thanks, kelliots......

    I'm surprised you haven't received any replies yet.....

    I have one of these in my plane, it's installed in the windshield on the right side up close to the wing root. I find that location very easy to look over and see the correct temperature without parallax errors.

    I've considered a Scott temp gauge, but I don't want to drill a hole thru my windshield.....
