Yes It will. I have a picture somewhere. I'll go dig it up.

Found it. (I only have 1 guage right now. )



That is the RS pod. Not a perfect fit, but pretty good. It could stand a little heat gun forming. You can see the little gap through the top hole, but because of the black around the windsheild, you can't see it from outside the car, and obviously, if I had another gauge in there you wouldn't be able to see it from the inside.

Does it snap on under the window/pillar door/pillar trim or are there actual pins/screws that hold it in place? I've wanted to do this but didn't want to modify the pillar cover to do it.

Thanks,

Dale

You have to drill four small holes in the pillar.

subiekid-those look pretty nice, did you do those?

i put mine in the dash below my cd deck, basically there were 2 empty DIN spots, just some compartments that i took out, then i made a replacement face, the angles the gauges up and toward the driver a little, its a work in progress but once i finish it, which should be in a couple days, i will post some pics.

how did you cut out the gauges holes, is it possible to get a 2 1/16" diameter hole cutter that attaches to a drill or how did you guys cut them out for those of you that did. thanks

After being told that I wasn't authorized access to the Sound Illusions site, I managed to get on Speedwagon's soundillusions.net/sites/speedwagon/ site but couldn't find the gauge or the stealth installation. Did find a Defi Gauges under your modifications but no joy there either as the thumbnails wouldn't load. And that's another question, is there a reason why the thumbs won't load? Whenever I click on the thumbs (that I could see), especially of Okinawa where I've spent lots of time, I get the dreaded HTTP 404 Not Found page.

you can get a bit for a 2 and 1/16 hole. it would be hallow in the middle. i used them in wood shop, back in the day. my cluster came with the 3 holes for the gauges. can i see a pic of yours? with my cd player inthe way there is not room down there for the gauges. i also wanted to be able to keep close watch on my boost gauge.

the hardest part is drilling a hole in the fire wall. i ran them through the rubber section that is just left of the brake pedal. i didnt like that so i got my metal drill bits and punches out and after like 2 horus and all the holes cut for my wires and tubes. one thing that helped me was running a very small and hard to bend wire down from the vents to the cd player i then tied the wire to that and pulled them up.

I don't know what's going on.. I've been trying to figure it out though.. always works for me.. only sometimes it works for others... some ppl say if you copy and paste the link it will work.

I think I'm just going to move my site elsewhere..

The only way I could access the site was to cut back the URL to just "http://www.soundillusions.net/sites/speedwagon/" and paste that in so that could get to your site page. Otherwise, I just get the "don't have permission to access" page.

Once I was on your site, then I could click on the various parts, including the Defi gauges page. Again, some of the pics would load as thumbs and some wouldn't and then I'd get the square box "x" that shows where a pic should be. Even right-clicking and clicking the "show picture" doesn't load the pic either.

that does look cool

thanks, yea they are hole saws, i am frickin pissed though cause the one i bought was like warped or something so it made my holes too big and they werent even round, thats why it threw off my gauges so they arent perfect.

oh well, once it is painted it will look a ton better, but now all i have to do is patch up around the gauge edges and then primer and paint and it should look pretty sweet.

what do you guys think of my BMC designs gauge pod?

Yea, that was me. And yes, I was in Japan at the time. I am no longer there.. but those items will be in my 98 Legacy soon enough.

I made that with black plexiglass.. sorry I don't have a daytime shot for ya. But, it was the black/smoked plexi that's opaque.. nice and shiny, and matched the gauges. Just cut 2 holes in it, and L brackets to mount it in above the stereo.

No, not yet. I've been broke, and I needs parts first. BUT, I have money now, and I'm starting to collect the parts I need. I technically have everything, but I want new gaskets, water pump, oil pump and such. But I should have that stuff in the next couple of weeks, so probably start the swap early July.

subie-yea i basically got the dimensions and thought of the shape i wanted, then made a mold out of cardboard(GHETTO), then i layed a layer of fibergalss cloth over the top, got pretty hard, then did a layer of mat on the backside, and its pretty solid, then did some bondo to get it smooth.

i hooked up the illumination, it looks awesome, the green is great, the needles could be a little more red but its awesome.
