    Gauge location and Pillar pods

    So I have been poking around looking for gauges and mounting locations...

    Boost at a min My main concern is location, It needs to be clean, not that busy and out of the way or at least tucked in, I am thinking between the RPM and the fuel gauge, I think a 52mm would fit in there nicely.

    My other thought is a Pillar Pod... Is there a 08 pillar pod out there and has anyone seen or read about issues with the air bag?

    Any thoughts???

    hey lefty,
    i would stay away w/ the gauges from the a-pillar dude. sounds like a near death experience in the making to me.

    above the MPG / TPMS seems to be popular but i like your idea between the tach and fuel gauge. ;D

    Re: Gauge location and Pillar pods

    I thought that the pillar + Airbag = bad news. BUt I also read that the air bag deploys from the upper most portion of the pillar, wich would mean that OEM pillar cover and for this matter aftermarket would fold down between the dash and windshield.

    I understand that a accident is an accident and you can't control it but that would mean that you cold not control an OEM pillar cover either...

    Just a thought... I m only pushing cause I like that look!

    Re: Gauge location and Pillar pods

    Most stock pillars with airbags are connected to the car still when they go off. Their is a piece of plastic that holds the pillar on when it goes off. Plastic is like 2 inches long so that when it does go off, the pillar can move out of the way. Might be able to fab something to a new pillar to do the same so that they dont' get smashed in your face.

    I have a with www.photobucket.com when you upload pictures to your account you can get copy and past a "IMG" code into your post... That links a picture into the post. If you insert my post into a reply, you will see the IMG Code ;D...
