I feel like Miss Cleo right about now. And by that I meant the psychic, not the p0rn star.The gauge pod is mounted, but I left my computer at a customers house, so the pics that detail that are out of my reach at this minute.
I did move it way down to the top bar and it looks way better because of that.
I also decided to separate the dash and the console from each other, and now the console's whole purpose will be to conceal the shifter, and give me a place to mount a couple of drink holders.
I widened the space between the two center bars, and now the AC vents, the HVAC controls, head unit, and a few switches will all reside there now.
That is a good suggestion, but it's all behind me. There is only one more "revision" that I may make to my recent changes, and that will be to create an "underpod" to mount the HVAC control and head unit in, and just keep the center reserved for A/C vents. The only reason I'm considering that is because the center area will get real busy w/ all that junk crammed in there. We'll see I guess.Just a thought,what about making the pod run across to the passenger side,and sink it down into the dash a couple inches, you could duct your vents through it and the defrost vent where the pod and dash come together.
Nope to the visual pass through,......see,......it's dark in that hole, once the gauges are sealing it up, it's dark in there. so it'll kind of work like this:All I can say sir, is that you have good taste. As far as Googling Miss Cleo, I should have put that bio hazard warning in there. I Googled the name to make sure I was thinking of the right psychic, and boom, there the alternate was right up in my eye sockets. Glad Im not the only blind one in here now.
Now Mike, not to be too critical, but you think the mesh in the gauge pod will expose the wiring to the eye? Again, just my opinion, but would a solid piece of metal look a little cleaner? You could even wrap it in whatever you wrap the dash in, and leave the metal surround as the divider between the two wrapped pieces.
