    Fitting Gauges

    Hey, I was wondering whether i am able to fit 2 or 3 gauges in a pod along the pillar by the wind screen as there is Airbags fitted everywhere including along these pillar in me GSI ???

    Wont the pods affect the airbags as i dont want them being launched at me face ops: at 200mph wen the airbags go off if i av a crash.

    Any ideas peeps, Cheers

    I wouldn't go for the A pillar mate on a GSi, sounds a bit risky, wouldn't want a face full of gauge the air bags fired :shock:

    you can get some nice DIN size plates, or plates with gauge holes you can cut to DIN size probably the best bet.

    I think C9RUM was selling a gauge set like that

    DO NOT mount them onto the Airbag pillars. V V dangerous !

    As Lego says, go for a DIN size setup
