Default Gauge mounting.

Hey guys, I am going to be ordering some gauges soon, I am thinking about going with an autometer pillar or the Garage Spec one shown below,


But what I would really like to do is make a motorized pop-up one that goes where the clock pod goes, like the older JDM pup-up navigation screens. I looked through the catalogs here http://accessory.subaru.co.jp/imprez...log/index.html (I had no idea how many factory accessories/customizations were available across seas) but it looks like they changed it on the 06's, I would like to get an older one and see if I can modify it though.

Does any one know where I can get the housing/motor stuff for the pop up nav unit, and not the screen?

Thanks,

Cameron

I think I am going to try and do a full custom setup and not use the navigation screen housing, what I would like to do is modify the stock clock housing so when it is down it will look stock but with the press of a button it will rotate up and have gauges mounted on it. I know the passenger airbag sensor display could cuase some problems, is there alot of play in the wires, or could extending the wires hurt anything?

If there isnt enough room after modifying the AC vents, I will either get a pod or do this

I want to get started this weekend, not sure what to use for a motor yet, a regular servo or linear actuator.

I dont think I will be able to keep the clock pod looking stock, what I will do is cut out the "dish" part that the clock sits back in and fiberglass it smooth, that will give me a little more room. I havn't actualy looked under the clock pod yet so I don't know if there will be enough room. I know for sure I will have to cut out or modify the ducting for the AC Vents (I dont use those two any way).

Does any one have any pictures with the clock pod out?

Thanks,

Cameron

If one man has a dream, that man can make reality if put forth enough effort.


And money.
