    My New Gauges + A-Pillar

    Boost and Oil Pressure for now. I Painted the Autometer A-Pillar using the SEM paint (very close match!). Used 3m Commercial doublesided tape to bond to the stock a-pillar. Solid as a rock =D. I didn't need to use the clips

    I like those gauges. Did they come with the lights like that? I'm changing my dash lights to blue, so they would fit nicely without modding.

    Know of a good site that sells them?

    Any chance of that paint chipping/flaking off? I want the 3 pillar, but the autometer is charcoal. I wish I could find one the color of the existing edging.

    Verbal that is the standard lighting. These are reverse indiglo gauges. I'm sure most vendors should be getting them soon.

    Surprisingly during the install I bumped the a-pillar into a few parts while installing it and the paint did not chip at all. The paint is really high quality and specifically designed for plastics and vinyl.

    I'm also eventually going to add reverse indiglo gauges to the main cluster. Should match up nicely with the gauges...

    Fireman,
    I just ordered mine from Summit Racing. 52.95 for three pod and 49.95 for a two pod. They don't sell a painted one though. You can also check out www.guagepods.com 44.99 for a three and 39.99 for a two. Add five dollars if you want them painted to match.
    It's not a damn beanbag!

    Yep it's $5.89 + s/h. Just 1 can is more than enough. I still have more than 70% of the can full. The match is very close.
