I have asked this in like 12 times in other threads and via the chat tool, in one form or another, and never get any responses, so starting a new thread.
I want to add some gauges to my ride. I like the SMY cluster hood thing, but that is not an option at the current time. Why? Well, cause I'm a big dude, and my steering wheel is tilted all the way up and pushed all the way in. This means the high beams would be on permanently. This can not be fixed without either me loosing a bunch of weight (working on that) so that I can telescope it out a bit, or me buying the GTSpec D shaped wheel (which is slightly smaller, and thus give me room), but that is like $600.
The 08+ clock pods look like ass. So do the 'right side' pods.
Pods screwed or taped to the top of the gauge hood look like ass.
The vent pods are a nifty idea, but I like my vents for air flow.
I have a sunroof and the auto-dimming mirror, so those pods that tape to the windshield are out.
I use my glovebox, so pods there are out too.
As far as I see it, that leaves one option....A pillar.
So, now I need to find an A Pillar that looks and is built good....where the hell do the late gen guys get one of those? I have only found two sources, BNA and JCS, both of which look to be the same quality.....take the OE part, glue on random pod X, add a metric ton of bondo, and rattlecan spray. I have more than one problem with this.
I want a one piece molded quality part that is going to match in both color and texture to the other pillars in the car.
I mentioned in the chat that I had submitted an e-mail to SMY asking about them making one....they never got back to me, and the members in the chat said that we already have many a-pillar options.....really? WHO!?
