Gauge question

Im about to install my 3rd gauge....Now for my previous two I just put them into the fuse panel loosely (put the wiring in then push the fuse over top).....Not only does this look tacky but it screws with some of my cab sensors ie ebrake light and door ajar. So how do I " hard wire my guages in" My friend is a sparky, he said he needs to see wiring diagrams....Anyone that can point me in the right direction Thanks

Re: Gauge question

Run one wire common for all your key on power, one wire common for all your ground and one wire common for your lighting. Dont run a wire down for each gauge.

That's what I did, diesel mannor have great instructions for finding the wire for the lights, and you can easily find a ground.
