Cubby gauge pod
 
1 Attachment(s)
Do any of you have this cubby gauge pod? I already bought a piece of acrylic to make one then ran across this one. If i would have known about it I would have just bought it. But since I already bought the acrylic I would like to try making one. Do any of you guys have this thing and if so would you be able to take some measurements? If not, Ill just do some trial and error til I get it to fit right. Thanks.

Yes, i got it like 2 weeks ago. You REMOVE the back part of your cubby (woops, drilled thru it thinking it says in there). I bought this and it really only takes about 2 mins to install once you have the air vents out. (which you just pull on...so add another 1-2 mins). Instructions are semi-easy to follow. Works great, one concern is the gauge themselves, make sure that they don't have a thick rim around the glass, otherwise it interrupts door a little bit. Thumbs up to the maker, really fits nicely.

Do you want your cubby to close with the gauges inside? No rattles or double stick tape? Mine fits perfect. Don't make one. Just buy one. That are not expensive. Be cautious about taking advice without seeing install pics.

This is where I got mine, I'll post pictures of post-install after my weekend workshop for credit.

Thanks. Thats the same place i grabbed the pic from. Does the "L" piece at the bottom end up under the gauges or in front of them?
So this thing isnt secured in any way? Is it a snug fit?

Greywolf 11-11-2012 11:38 AM

Very snug fit, doesn't move around at all, no rattle that I've noticed and I've had music down while listening to engine thx to paranoia from a bad mechanic I'm taking to court. The L piece is in front of gauges, it fits into the trim RIGHT above the time display.

In fact, tonight I'll be pulling my vents out to install my 2nd gauge, I'll show you how everything goes together. Look for pix around 5 mtn time (4 pacific) on this thread.

Cool. Thanks.

Couldnt find the pics of my install. I know they are around somewhere. Pretty sure after you see how it fits together in Greywolf's pics you will see why its worth doing it this way. Its very simple but smart design that works well.

I'll get a good pic of mine tomorrow when it's light out.

Very interested for more pics... Lookin to sell my nav and place gauges in the cubby like this.

I am very interested in getting that pod from JSC, but does anyone know if they still make the same pod that angles the gauges towards the driver? I have seen it from the originals that Casopolis had made.

I have this gauge pod and I like it a lot. I would reccomend it to anybody who doesn't want gauges on the A pillar. Between the simple but ingenious design, and the reasonable price...I would reccomend buying the jcs pod.
There aren't too many people these days who make a well designed product for our cars, even a simple one who don't try to rip you off for it.

angle toward driver totally unneeded and might prevent door from closing cleanly.

iNVAR 11-11-2012 11:43 PM

I have the one from Casopolis that is angled toward the driver, door closes fine and I neeeeeeeeeeeeeed the angle. ;)
