Default A Pillar Pod Installation

Good morning.

I recently purchased a two gauge A Pillar pod. Installation requires some drilling. I'm always a little hesitant about drilling so I was wondering.... Does anyone make an A pillar pod that is will clip in place like the OEM one that is being replaced?

Thanks for the help.

Yes, AutoMeter makes one. Contact Maggie at Race and Street for a color-matched A-pillar.

the autometer pod still requires you to drill four holes to put small pins in to attach to the stock A pillar. All you need to do is set the pillar in place on the A-pillar. Once you know how you like it and if it is seated ok, mark 4 spots on the pillar and drill holes. The place te pins to hold the two together. Remember, the A-pillar is an inexpensive replacement part. I suppose you could tape the pillars together using 2 sided tape...

I have the 3 gauge pd from R & S and actually ran it about 4 months with all 3 gauges in just not hooked up without using the rivets. Just hooked the edge over the existing cover at the top and never had it move. I did not mount it permanent with the rivets until I had the gauges hooked up. Seemed to stay put the entire 4 months.

Willing to try double sided tape? It a lot less hard to fix then holes.
