Default Review- SMY 2002-2007 dual pod bezel

Well finally got my SMY dual pod bezel from the group buy.

Out of the box it looked good. Definitely felt durable and similar to OEM.

The installation was straightforward and popped right into place after I swapped over the retaining clips and dust cover.

Here's a couple installed (iPhone) pictures.







Comments on the product:

Bezel fits nicely against the dash and there are no visable gaps.

Installation was nice and easy.

The rubber bands that are included in the kit are trash and do not fit! So I just wrapped the gauges with electrical tape till they felt snug.

Mechanical boost gauge does not fit into the cluster and needs to be turned to fit. This is the reason the boost gauge is off centered and not seated all the way down in the pictures. The pressure tube and fitting hit the bezel. So I would recommended for customers with only electrical gauges.

Overall good product and I will recommend it to others as long as SMY can address the issues mentioned.

I bought it with the group buy. But I believe that SMY sells it for $140.

@sol_tegra- I know. I want to know who did the QA testing and made gauges fit with those bands?

I had the same problem with mine too my auto meter gauge doesn't seat all the way down cuz the gauge is too deep, my AEM wide band fits perfect cuz is no t deep at all the solution would be buying another boost gauge like the ones STRI sells they are not deep but they re expensive, also I used Velcro around the gauges and they fit perfect

Yeah I'm just going to match my oil pressure guage and get the prosport boost gauge. They're electric and will match and fit perfect.
