  • Gauge pod input needed

    ok well as some of you may know i made a gauge pod a while back and need to make another to accomodate my new gauges for my turbo build, but i need help as to where i should put one. i make my own molds n shit so thats why i need some input.



    thats it now, i was thinking on the right side of the gauge console or a pillar or possibly a kind of extension off above my current one and have it angled towards me.

    input pleaze!!!!

    p.s. the pods will be painted a satin black, that one is gloss black right now.

    Props on the pod you made! Don't want to make a mount for a Miata do you? [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif[/img]

    I think that you should, depending on how many gauges you are adding (I'm guessing 2 to 3), use that indention in the dash, and have them angled towards you. Easy to make it flush with the dash, and it would give it a more stock appearance.

      +1 thats where i was goin to put mine...it would look so good there and you wont have to worry about them as much as you would on the pillar...never know someone might go to get in your car and fuck em lol

        id go off the side of the hump for the stock cluster. I wanna say Brent did that but I might be way off on that assumption.

            I would also agree in the dash since you already have a cluster close by.

              I'm about to make one of these @ work that will bolt in out of 16ga aluminum. Its an ideal spot.

                  haha, you stoled my words.

                  and yeh, center dash above the current ones would be cool. i think when i get mine i'll either do that or on the pillar

                    you goin to mold the new gauge pod into the dash and bring the level up so it looks stock / flush'ish or ou goin to just mount the pod on top in a lump sort of configuration? when i finally get to the point of needing gauges i want to fiberglass the dash to extend the downward curve farther to the right to create more room to install a couple of gauges up in there.

                            I want to make mine off the cneter indent as well. I suggested it years ago, and was thrown under the bus.

                            That one in the vent is really nice though, GJ!
