          I put it on it. You buy a universal one then melt it to fit over the pillar molding. I have also done a single pod.


          its a huge PITA to accomplish and i did it twice go figure.

                That is still up in the air. Around SF09 time a major event (the Us Open) begins and the company I am involved with starts working. I, still not a full time worker, would love to brown nose them as much as possible... So I will see when the time get closer. My goal is to work with them over the entire summer so I don't know at the moment but would love to come.

                  its a huge PITA to accomplish and i did it twice go figure.

                  And just to add...you trim the gauge pod first, then you heat it with a heat gun and mold it to the contour of the pillar itself. then you trim each end (cause melting stretches and you want a clean straight end) then you silicone it to the pillar. then drill holes and etc..the rest is simple. i am debating whether or not to put back my spare pillar with the single gauge pod or just but back my other spare with no pod.

                              Mustang Bullitt Wheels Acquisition

                              I got new wheels today for the summer, just for looks and such, since i still have the turbines with tons of life left to them.









                              one tire has a gash that i am not thrilled about at all but w/e it holds air.

                                those will look so good on that car. the gun metal on the wheels will work well with the brown and the black out treatment.
