Dual gauge pod dash mounted
 
3 Attachment(s)
Hello, decided to go with this gauge pod for boost and oil psi and at first I didn't think I was going to be able to use it. The pod being flat on the bottom, and the dash having a slight rise or bow to it. I did some thinking of what to use to take up the gap on the sides and found some rubber weather strip at lowes. After painting the pod, i notched the weather strip for the 90 deg corners and the strip has double sided tape that stuck rather well to the pod. It came out ok. I happy with it for now. The A piller may get some gauges in the future, or i was thinking about fabing up some gauge mounts for the center vent openings? I made one for my 07 f150 that came out nice and didn't loose a vent because the opening was big enough for air to flow around the gauge. If anyone has come up with a vent mount i would love to see a pic.. Thanks for reading!

they make these for newer rustangs. IDK how the vent sizes compare but i could see making something like this for a PT by butchering one from a junkyard

They work well. Have been around for years. They are basically universal but I like them myself! :good:
I used an addition angle adapter so it would better face my rather then mount flat.

And did the 1st gens come with optional double din head units or gps nav? I noticed that you're hu opening is square where my 03 is a din and a half with rounded corners...
Never mind about the double din question, i found the thread. I just painted my bezel 2 weeks ago,... May need some touch up or repaint after i do double din mod.

Based on that description.. .... I'm disappointed that the picture has been Photobucketed out of existence. Been looking for a good way to integrate a boost gauge myself.

Any chance of a repost?

Attachment 26462

there is a link to an add-on that fixes photobucket links.


i use "waterfox" as a a web browser. i have this installed https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...-embedded-fix/ and the pics still show up fine. works with firefox too. i literally forgot that photobucket pics don't work as they work again for me and have for a long time. might be worth checking out. :)
