Default Subiegal WRX Single Gauge Pod install?

Hey folks -

If you have one of those WRX single gauge pods from subiegal.com (the one that fits in the corner where the A-pillar meets the dash), I was wondering how your are routing the wires/hoses.

I've got an Autometer mechanical boost gauge and I'm using 1/4" (O.D.) rubber hose. I can't see how I could route the hose to that corner location without it getting pinched between the dash/trim panels.

I haven't purchased this pod (yet), as I would hate to cut/drill into my dash....

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

Dave

I made a hole in the a-pillar cover - it's covered by the gauge pod, so you don't see it.

i did the same. i also actually drilled holes and fastened the pod to the pillar to secure it in the corner. i could not mount it without doing so, it didn't look right. after i did this it looked great.

had the similar gauge pod before...it's quite good, but then it started to rattle after a while, so i just changed the gauge pod itself and got the carbon fiber autometer gauge cup.

i just put a black wire loom for the wires and hose. and personally like it much more. the gauge cup is fastened by double sided tape. i also had the option of drilling a hole and fastening it on the a-pillar, but decided against it, in case i get a 2-3 a-pillar gauge pod in the future.
