  • The finished article!!

    Well I was making a custom gauge pod for the panel below the window and I've finally managed to finish it over the past couple of days. The first one I made was to chunky so I re designed it and here it is. What do people think? I believe it's the first RHD one







    BTW the gauge is not one I use before any one takes the piss and says about the gauge

      Does it face the driver? As it looks like it's angled straight into the pillar?

          No it's got a slight angle to it and is perfectly visible from the drivers seat. If you look at the panel you will see that you only have a minimal amount of room to angle it because the edge of the dash rises up and interferes with the pod. I did position it really towards the driver but they won't fit like that as the pod hits the dash and the window. It's a tricky one.

          Take a look at this link from the Greek tuners, there's faces the same direction as mine but LHD.

              Sorry

              Are the gauges easy to install?

                Yea the gauges are easy to do. The fitting of the pod is also easy, just pull the A pillar cover off as it's on clips, then pull the standard panel out beneath it then replace with this gauge pod and clip back together easy

                I might put it on eBay and see what it goes for

                        Cheers fella. Well, this one is even more appealable due to it being the only one and I'm not sure if I'm making more...maybe I will if someone pm's and asks but would take a week or so to complete as there not easy to make

                              Your a troll fella

                              Like I said it will go on eBay. It gives a lot more people the option to bid and to be honest if it goes for 99p then it goes but I know it won't. I've already had loads of messages about it.
