@TXwrxWagon

The new pod uses the factory pod clock mounts (except the rear 2, which were cut out so the gauges would fit), but I don't know if its possible to get it all to fit in the stock clock pod spot. If you look at pictures of the bottom, you can see the gauges extend an inch and a half or so past the stock clock pod and you can also see I kept 4 of the 6 stock clips.

The only way I could make it all fit would be to move the gauge pod forward, and if you move it forward you can't see the clock. The only way to deal with that is to raise the pods up, which I don't think would allow it to flow as well into the stock pod. That was part of the reason I didn't really care for the zero sports one; because of how large it is.

You can't tell part of the new pod extends past where the stock clock pod goes though.

However, there has been some interest in these so I may work at tweaking this design and I'll see how everything turns out...

After thinking about it for a bit...I may have a way to do it. It will require a little more fabrication, but it may be possible.

Well, I'll probably start working on a new one soon. One of the things I was thinking of was smoothing over the top of the gauges. In the top down view of the gauges you can see the gaps between each individual gauge. I was thinking of filling those in. This could also possibly allow me to fit everything within the clock pod area by cutting off the extra area in the pods and molding it myself.

It would work with autometer 52mm gauges, but does anyone know how long other 52 mm gauges are? Are they all about the same length?

What do you guys think?

Hmm I have been thinking abotou something similar but place the Clock in the middle of the Gauge pod almost like a set of frog eyes. So you would have two gauges and the clock.

I just measured an autometer sport comp oil psi guage. Its 1.5" deep (not including the ring arround the face). If you include the light its a little ist 2 3/16th deep. I didnt measure the fittings because it would probably fit under the dash and wouldnt interfere.

Hope it helps! I got the same autometer pod, subscribed!!

what paint did you use to do the pod? in some pics it looks like a good match to the factory dash, and in others it's a bit lighter. I've been on the hunt for a bunch of different dark charcoal colors to mess around with until I get the right color for painting my interior. Pod looks great too btw!

lol, it does look a little funny from the front (but looks great in the car ).

bcWRX-02, I used duplicolor interior "Universal Black". It is an extremely flat black lol.

Thanks for taking some measurements Quads. I know this fits autometer gauges cause those were the ones I used. Does anyone have any measurements of other brand gauges?

Also, to those that are interested in something like this a friend and I are looking at a way to produce a lot more of these (versus hand making them all)

good work, because i THINK that the 06/07 style clocks wont entirely work w/ the zerosports clock pod.

edit: meh..looks light it might fit (post 2584 http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...255488&page=52) ..whatever..doesnt change the fact that the DIY is good.

The zerosport clock pod is too expensive. I also don't like how huge it is either
