I got my pod almost done. This pod started out as a 92-97 Ford. I cut the top and bottom off the pod. I bought the pod from Glow Shift. (Good company to deal with.) The plastic isn't really the same measurements as my a pillar post so I had to do a little twisting to get it to fit on to my column trim. Since it was a little twisted using glue was out of option cause of the tension on it so I broke out my fiberglass and resin and Bondo and went to work. I did a few test fits today and the bottom pod clears the dash by like a quarter inch. I plan on having this thing finished by doing some more sanding and final touch up and a shot of paint. I will get more pictures once I get the pod installed on the truck.
I did a test fit after I got all the fiberglass and bondo work done, the gauges are easy to see, I will post a picture once I get it on permanently, the trim for the A-pillar goes at a pretty good angle.
That should have fit pretty well to begin with. I used a pod for a 87-96 ford in my 85 and the only thing is the mounting surface is round while the pillar trim has an angle. The gap is barely noticeable though. I just attached it with double sided tape. Looks like you're going the extra mile though, good luck.
I got it done, Ive had a few compliments so far on it. Right now im running the amp gauge, oil pressure, and water temperature. I plan on ditching the amp gauge and getting a EGT gauge to replace it on the top pod. At first I had the oil on top but the thing was lacking length to be able to hook it up on the back of the engine. After I get my EGT I am going to replace the other 2 gauges with gauges identical to the EGT.
Here is what I am going to replace the gauges with..
Should I go digital or not?
My buddy used to be sponsored by Carsponsors.com and he had that exact same set up. He used to love his Glow Shift gauges, granted he put it in his older M3 but Ive heard good things from these, Thanks for the post!
