What did you do about the airbag? Is it still connected?

Great observation, I thought I wodul leave extra room for a guage in the future. I looked at some pictures of the air bag deployed looks like ot comes out from the top of the piller. To be safe ill trim off the top.

Looks nice. I have the mount that connects to my vent and I don't know if I like it.

I had all the materials at home. So it was basically free minus the labor. The mount functions like the one that came with the accessport. I put strong magnets in the back. Cobb sent me the outer shell for free +1 for them. Other than trimming it down i'm satisfied with it.

just thinking out loud. but you could have your AP mounted to the windshield via suction cup and be in the same position. and it wouldnt be an eye-sore with the AP removed.

This is something i have been kicking around for a little while. I have mine mounted in the same spot but just using a swivel mount screwed to the pillar, ill post some pics later. My plan is to mold the mount to the pillar similar to how you did but the one thing that bugs me is the cord hanging out the bottom so i think im going to try to mold it larger around the bottom so the entire cord is hidden inside the pod.. Good work though. Im surprised more people have not done something like this.

I Vote bad. Better/easier ways to accomplish the same mount point.

Of coarse there is an easier cheaper way. But not all of us like the look of a cheap cheesy plastic swivel mount that looks like it came from auto zone that wobbles when you drive to mount our 600 dollar tuner in a 40k dollar car. I for one am pretty disappointed that there isn't already some kind of molded replacement pillar dock available like every single tuner available for every single diesel truck on the market has. It just looks so much cleaner like it actually belongs there.
Even this cheesy pillar looks better than anything available for the ap. Props to op for trying to make something clean.
