Default Rare gauge mounting pod---where can I find one?

Hey I've done my research...evidently this isn't the popular place to mount gauges.

Does anyone know where I can get one of these?


I want to mount three 52mm gauges right beneath my head unit. I still haven't found someone who sells one.

you will just have to figure a way to mount the panel.

omori gauges are really nice too btw. i have j-spec tunings 60mm any color gauges in their cf dash top pod.

if you cant mount the ones that are just panels then you can probably just cut the mounting rails off of a stock subaru blank or pocket and glue the new panel to the rails.

just be carelful with ones that arent made for the wrx. i tried to use the angled one in my bug but it wouldnt fit in the space and the gauges on the angle hit the head unit mounting brackets.

i fit mine in with a bit of cutting and an aluminium bracket bolted to the head unit bracket but i dont think the above DIN sized facias will fit. double check before you buy them if you can...

mine fit in like this after a lot of swearing...

52mm, and they are slightly cut off at the top. you can see all the gauge, just not all of the surround...

Hmm. Well I still really want to mount mine below the radio...hopefully mine will fit so that they can be seen clearly.

test fit the gauges in the opening first. the subaru has a double din opening so they should fit if they are 52mm gauges. those gauges in slobug's car look alot like 60mm's or just 52's with really big trim rings.

I want to do the same thing with my 52mm gauges. I PM'ed J-spec and they don't have anymore of the Omori pieces, they sold out last month and aren't expecting anymore as the piece is discontinued.
