so i cut down the gauge pod by alot so it would sit with the right angel when in place..... lots of gaps but not to worry. let it dry the filled it all up with more glue... used a black 2 part epoxy resin glue. let it dry then plastic padding filled it out. did this a couple of times till it lokked 99% then used a spray filler and sprayed then hole thing then rubbed it down with 480 paper then spay filler one last time then sprayed it mat black..

so you know you can use your own vent tray if you want but i want to keep mine incase i want to put it back if i sell the car and when you do the work you can remove the vents from it so you can work on the housing only

yer i seen the posts your talking about but the pod is smaller and i wanted smoth clean lines when it was finished and the lip to cover it a bit from the sun, the wrx one has no lip and was a bit smaller.

but this was a d i y build so if you want to try another pod unit you can and hope to see some posts up here after

Just out of intrest guys what extra gages are you putting in there. Is there anything else you need to keep an eye on thats not already on the dash. I have a pillar mounted pod on my turbo coupe has boost gauge and oil temp. The car didn thave these as standard and as i turned the boost up it was a good idea to keep an eye on both.

I really like the look although i would probably try to turn the pod slightly towards the driver and i cant think of what gages i would put in there.

Gages for the sake of gages then. air temp, exhaust temp air fuel ratio,nothing you can do about either not a 70mph down the m6 there isnt anyway lol. Liking it lads just for looks but not compleatly useless. i just couldnt think of anything else that you really/actually need to keep an eye on while driving and to be honest i still cant lol. Its all about the looks but its a look i like so its on my list.

Must disagree.

Air fuel ratio esp. thats pretty vital on a modified engine.

must agree its pretty vital but is there anything you can do about with out a garage and parts. So not much point monitering it unless its for show. Besides unless it goes way out the car will just keep on running and get you home. Even then if it does go out the management light will come on so you will know somethigs wrong.
