Center Console 2 Gauge Pod
 
Hi everyone,

I am thinking of making an silver/black anodized or silver/black colored aluminum gauge "pod" that will look look like sort of the one in this post. It would have 2 x 60mm holes, 60mm fitment sleves, and mounting bolts.

As option, you could get 2 x 60 to 52 conversion sleves that would allow you to mount 52 mm gauges.

Price would be about 85-95USD shipped depending on wheteher you got the additional conversion sleves.

Let me know if you are interested and if you have any useful feedback

Thank you

I don't like the sleeves around gauges...

Why not a version with one 52mm or 60mm hole and the other side indented for storage? I've been thinking of that for a while now.

Visors do not come with pod, these happen to be Defi gauges and the visor is optional as a defi accessory,

I could probably do one with only 1 hole but the door that closes the compartment now would have to go either way. I will see what I can do.

Need more feedback and see some interest.

Anyone else?

Thanks

Iím planning to put 2 52mm in the cubby and have the door shut. Iím going to make everything myself but if you could find some trick way so the cubby doesnít glow when the door is shut I would be interested. Right now Iím planning on installing a switch on the power line but if you could integrate a button that is activated my the cubby doorÖ:cool:


To be honest I think enough people on here have done this (60ís without the door and 52s with the door) and posted walk through with pics, Iím not sure you would sell many units but im glad vendors are thinking about us.

If you wanted to a gague pod that people will buy I would do somthing like THIS.
IMHO

I'd like to see this guage pod have the pods facing more towards the driver.

That would be excellent.

I'd be interested... probably 52s if there was an option that didn't involve sleeves. Price is a hair high, as well.

Is this view of a JDM version? I think it is because the emergency flasher switch is on the left side and the gauges seem to be oriented toward a right driver.

I would really like a 2 x 52mm gauge holder that fits inside the cubby so that the cubby door can be closed completely. Out of sight, out of mind, very subtle and not crying out for a break in. Ideal would be a system that enable the Autometer Nexus gauge system to fit behind the cubby door.

yes, it is. The stereo is also a dead give away

I would be interested...I echo the sentiments of others...would prefer two 52mm so I can close the cubby door when necessary (i.e. letting the car sit in an airport parking lot for several days)

mmm def 04-11-2005 09:55 AM

I'm interested , or something along the lines of the AVO pod. Someone needs to hurry up and come out with something.

ummm no.....................

being able to close the door is key. The plate I made from scratch didn't take long and cost about 20 bucks... Is there an adavanyage to having 60mm gauges besides the fact that they're just bigger?
