gauge pod options

As of right now I have 2 60mm gauges that I am going to be installing. I'm having a hard time finding any pods that accomodate dual 60mm's. The one place I've come up with is an A pillar from www.gaugepods.com, either that or just use some cups. My original plan was A pillar, but the more I wait, the less I like that idea. If anyone knows of something similar to the autometer bezel, but will fit 60mm gauges lemme know, looks like I might end up buying a 3rd gauge and replacing the clock? I'm so indecisive about this right now! Any info/suggestions would be great.

Get a 3rd gauge and use a Defi gauge pod that replaces the stock clock. It looks badass man.

perrin says "universal"... which to me says will fit like crap and probably block your stock gauges, not to mention cover up that parking light switch on the top of the column.... I'm not really in a hurry anyway, seeing how Gruppe-S can't seem to ship me a gasket kit w/out it getting lost in the mail! 2 down, going for try number 3 tomorrow.

I got the pillar from www.vividracing.com which holds 2 60mm gauges. It was like 50 or 60 bucks and it matches interior.
Hope that helps
Noogin

BTW, anybody know of a good place to tap in for a constant power and an ignition (switched) power? Im going to use the wires from stock boost gauge, but it only has the light and ground wire.
Any suggestions will help

oh, I forgot. i got it from www.carbonconcept.com

Its also available for 52mm gauges as well. I think this is the best pod design i've seen for 60mm guages, cause its not huge. now all i need is the gauges...

Yea the defi is the same, comes unpainted, and is only for 60mm gauges. Gruppe-s has carbon fiber versions for 60mm and 52mm for $195.

Also after looking closer at those pics, the defi pod has clips on it all around the outer edge, this cf one has a bolt and a lineup pin.

Yup, to match the dash you use SEM Medium Smoke Bumper Coater Spray Paint. Part number: 39163
