Wiring Dyslexia

I ordered a set of oil temp/pressure gauges and plan on installing them in the center console.
Where's a good place tap for power/ground/lights?
Do you run wires all the way to the fuse box?
DIY / Install info welcome.

There is an unused plug under the console for the factory installed cell phone, the plug has both switched power and a ground source. Search for DIY radar detector installs as this plug is a favorite tap point for hooking them up.
