Default has anyone done this before me?

I am doing a clock pod for my gauges, but being 06+ I need to keep my clock. So I plan to use the ash tray wiring and the plug from the clock to power my clock down here. I will make a plastic section to fit this in to make it clean. Has anyone done this before, and does anyone have pics of this done?

Thats the first I've seeen this. Give it a try and let us all know how it goes. I went with a dual bezel pod because I didn't want to lose my clock. I also want your shift knob!! How much did you pay for that and where?

Here's something similar that I did. I bought a clock/outside thermometer that has 12V green backlighting. I made a small aluminum mounting bracking bracket that I tried to show in the pictures. The clock is velcroed (is that a word?) to the bracket and the bracket fits snugly between the ash tray door and the surrounding trim. It works great and doesn't look too bad either.

I did it to my 02 with the clock in the ashtray...the great thing about it is it looks very stock and works with the dimmer! oh and you have a secret spot to stash behind the ashtray when you pull it out...can't post pics though.

Single or doubledin radio? You could always mount it in the other slot if it is a single din radio.

It is a RoadPro 1214. The place I bought it from no longer sells it, but it can be found on-line at places like http://www.comfortforless.com/ro12elinthwi.html .

Or just do what I did and turn it so the light won't shine through the triple gauge pod. I've thought about relocating my clock but the factory wiring is just long enough so that you can't move it anywhere at all.

I was basically going to cut the harness to the clock so I would have the plug, then take the wires from the cigarette lighter and use them to power the clock. Would that work?

i cut the harness, extended the wires down along the radio and reconnected them to the clip, then plugged it back into the clock.

the clock sits in the stock ashtray which i dremeled the poop out of to make it hold the clock in place

you are better off getting a clock from an earlier model. that way you can have the stock one under your guage pod so you don't get the flashing SRS light. and relocate the second one lower.
