    Single gauge pod - heater vent ones

    Where did you get yours?

    Looking to add a 4th gauge (AFR) and am kinda wanting it in one of the heater vents.

    Thanks people.

    I was actually blackmailed into making it by Shane, as he'd kidnapped my family and held them to ransom in return a gauge holder. Rather than involve the police and risk the possible consequences, that he might carry out his threats on my loved ones, I begrudgingly agrees to comply in return for their safe release.

    So in short, it was a one off, and I really don't want to do another one.

    sorry

    I just used a normal vent with the slats cut out, and the guled a short section of one of those dash-top pods in (that came with the gauge), and then started building up the shape with filler.

    The secret weapon is a WD40 tin wrapped in sandpaper to get a constant groove across the face - it's also perfect for the recess to

    fair enough, was hoping for a genuine ffeog product on my coupe . Will have to pop to breakers tommorrow for a spare one then. Did you guys block the air path off behind it?

    there no need to block the vent really, as the gauge holder does that well enough, and the air can come out the other vent
