Possible Gauge Pod Solution...

What do you guys think?

I think we can mount this fairly easily with little to no modification to our dash.

Any of the other fabricators have any feedback here?

This is from the Boss 302:



It retails for $100.

Looks like a great solution for those who prefer a dash mount.

I may pick one up and make it work. If I do, I'll absolutely post a detailed "How-To".

Re: Possible Gauge Pod Solution...

nah. How are you gonna mount that without drilling into the dash so it doesn't look like some 16 year old's first Civic? I know Gizmo is working on one similar to this, but no way I'm hacking up my dash. These cars are hard to sell as it is

Re: Possible Gauge Pod Solution...

There had been a steering collum mount fabbed by a vendor (think it was on the red site and I can't remember who).
Gizmos was hinting of a dash unit and a few of us (at least myself) is looking at custom molding our radio bezel.

If you can work with that and make it look good, all the power to you.

There were only a couple steering column gauge pods made and they stopped making them.

We are looking into two different gauge pods. One would be the steering column and the other would be a dash mount.

The steering column pods we are working on will be the first thing we make and they should be available around May-June. If there is still a demand we will make the dash mount.

The dash mount will not be part of the radio bezel. The cost involved in making something like this would be around 5-7 grand and with a limited amount of people buying the price would be crazy high and no one would want to buy therefore this sort of thing will never happen. We were looking at a more simple design like the one in the first post except we would have a very thin wire track that would match the dash to hide wires and the pods would be attached with a strong double sided tape. We would still have the option to mount the pods with hardware.

I've seen those before.

Not sure if you know the name Speed of Sound LLC... I won't post a link, out of respect to the vendors here.

They make all sorts of gauge mounting solutions for Mustangs. They have a similar dash pod that they made 2 versions of. Drill-less with the wire track, or the one that requires drilling.

Of course the masses prefer to not drill into the dash, but the wire tracks never quite look right.

I for one would pick up a steering column mount today!

I was just looking at the top of our dash, and seeing how it's perfectly shaped for a dash pod on either the top of the center stack or directly above the steering wheel.
