I assume youhave got an A-Pillar replacement with all pods mounted? YOu can simply pull off the a-pillar its only held with some push clips.Originally posted by Penguinking
i'm mounting my gauges (boost, egt, and oil temp) on the gaugepod on the a-pillar of my car. most of the instructions i've seen have been for the steering collum one or the dash install. how do i work through to hook up the gauges to the a pillar?
also, how do i do the electrical stuff to hook up the backlighting for the gauges? im so new to this it isnt even funny
The wires (electrical and pressure hoses) will run down behind the a-pillar trim. There is enough space in there.
For the lighting, it depends if you want a dimmable light or a fixed light? I went with dimmable. To do this just remove the silver trim around the stereo. To do this there are 6 clips. 4 along the side (2 on left and 2 on right) and 2 at the bottom.
It's probably easier to remove the cupholder first as you can then get some leverage and see the clips. Then just tap the light wires to the lighter or the ashtray. I went with the lighter. Run you wires to the guages and your in business.
