    Fixing gauges into the moaro gauge pod?

    So how do you do it?

    My pod has arrived and before I cut the centre consol I have spare I was wondering how other's who have done this mod fitted their gauges in the pod and is there a gap at the top?
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    I hot melt glued mine - pain the backside though as one has dropped out.

    I had to dismantle the gauges, remove the bezels and glue in, I was talking to Mark W at PV though and he did his slightly different.

    There are those two bits of plastic for the top inner part of the hole, i was going to glue mine in then make a bracket out of a slim piece of aluminium or ss. drill four holes for the gauge bolts to go through then attach it inside.

    How did he do his then Scott?

    I only picked the pod up this morning so I have litterally only looked at it for 2 minutes, but there's no point in me reinventing the wheel, so to speak!

    Pity your car is not at Courtenay's Scott, if it was then I could look at it!

    I have not got them, are they separate parts?

    I got two gauge holders (which i cut part out of so i can pop the gauge in and out) and fiberglassed them in, so i can change the bulbs on the gauges if need be. You also need to think how you will run the cables (for backlight etc) so you can get it in and out easly, i used an old iso connector.


    I will be honest, its not easy, its a tight fit and it needs thinking about!!!
