    Gauge pod idea?

    One of my first interior mods is gon be getting some gauges and a three guage pod in top of the center console.

    Now, when i first saw these pods on other WRX's I thought maybe they can be depressed to hide it, and pressed again to show it ( in the similar fashion as the ashtray in the center).

    What i want to know is if there is any room under that area for three gauges to be pressed in.

    If there is room, and is possible to make it, I want to know if such aftermarket pod already exists.

    I had the same thought but just figured I'd try to crack open the dash when I get a chance cause I couldn't find an answer to the question. I'm assuming there isn't much room. I've thought of some alternative but all require more customization than I'm capable of.

    You think they'd leave a pocket of space big enough to hide gauges and not put a pocket or something up there? I'm sure it's full of heating duct work.

    I've seen a guy custom cut the bottom of his dash, close to where the radio is, and put a set of three defi's in there. Very stealth, very clean looking set up... wish I had pictures.
