Pod for on the dash? Im wondering if it could be heated up to form better, etc.
Heated in hot water?
might not be a bad idea, i always wanted to try this form of dash mounting http://www.73-87.com/7387garage/interior/gauges_dashmounted.htm
No , was thinking heat gun or blowdryer if it didnt conform to dash , but it looks like it might. Not sure how its secured, Id like it to be more secure than jus stickied down or something.
yeah ive thought about the dash deal. Dunno how hard it would be to read the far right gauges though, but its pretty clean install.
HooWee, looks like a Ferryrrirri. No, it does look really sharp, top drawer. I've been looking for a place to mount 3 X 2 1/16 guages in the H3; I'd hate to cut holes, but the sharp install more than makes up for it.
Actually, I jus went down and looked. And there is room from what I can see to put 2 gauges vertical right beside the A/C vent on the dash above the rear window switch. It would make a pretty clean install. Not sure what is directly behind there. If someone can post pics of gutted dash that would help out. , if there is room right there, I may jus go ahead and mount a couple of gauges there.
Thanks. Now I jus gotta be a member to see em. lol.
But from the ONE pic I was able to see, looks like there is alot of room beside the A/C vent above the rear window switch. Im thinking of jus tryin the pod idea. It's less evasive. lol. If I was building a show rig, maybe. Or jus put em in the place of the factory gauges, which is what I really wanna do, but seems pretty involved, money and time.
Here ya' go...
Those were the ones I posted in that lined thread above...
my tucks is a standard but the pervous onwer put a steering coloum from a auto in it and got a tach mounted to were the shifter is susposed to be it looks liek it was made for it
Thanks Avery4jc. thats what I was lookin for.
Not a problem, oh and just Avery is fine, lol.
Put it outside on the hood/cowl , and add GTO badge to your grille
I put two guages on my dash years ago . I was made to take them off by the state or no tags . Might want to check about it before you go to alot of work .
This is Florida, pretty much anything goes down here.
We dont have any inspections, no emission testing and non of that "cant put anything aftermarket" like Cali does. lol
I like the turbo gauge there.
That pod is likely ABS, hot water wouldn't be enough. Heat Gun should be.
What's with all the KA bashing lately? KA wouldn't say anything about gauges mounted on the dash. My grandad has had a triplet of gauges mounted on the dash of his '68 Town & Country Wagon (383 Hi-Po) since it was new.
BTW, we're not exporting our Stoopid laws, your law makers are looking at them & thinking they're a good idea.
I was in Cali for 2 years. Nice place to visit but too many laws (vehicles and gun laws) for me to wanna live there again. I enjoyed my time there, but I was USMC so IMO, it didnt really count cuz I didnt fall prey to some of the rules/laws.
Anyways, im goin to go with the Dash Pod w/ dual gauges (clock & voltage). I dont think itill be too difficult, infact I'm hoping to not have to remove the dash at all.
How about these gauges:
View attachment 31022
View attachment 31023
The temp gauge is sunpro auto zone special and the oil pressure came with the truck and I have no idea what brand it is but it looks almost OEM.
cant view those, not a paying member.
Anyways, problem solved
I went with the dash pod.
