Maybe this is because it'* a 2000+, but I know my A-pillap is a snap in, not screws (just reinstalled them both today). Am I thinking of the the wrong thing? Are the pods seperate from the pilliar as a whole or is this just the way afteremarket will need to be done?

Yes this is another thing that drove me crazy. Lotek uses screws to mount their pillar pods with a plastic cap. The problem is the cost will go up quite considerably for me to have a special mount made to match the stock unit.

That said I could have it done if you want but with small numbers it will get even more expensive. Let me know if you guys really want a stock mounting system I can make it happen but I need to know.

Well, assuming the pods are around $50 right now (ballpark figure?) I would be willing to do about %20 more in cost ($10 or so) to get a cleaner install with clips vs screws. If the cost of the clips is gonna double it or something, I can live with the screws.

Well I am not sure about the cost so its really going to be a waiting game. For the backing we will use a milled plastic part that will be integrated. That or to reduce cost I can use your original or another original and incorporate the backing form into our product.

Pics and more info on this post. I need some interior pics of the 2000-2003 Bonneville so I can be sure we put the pods in the right place. It can get complicated. It is hard to place them while maintaining normal vision.

Yes interior pics will help but I will get into a car and mess around once I get a mock up.

Ty any updates? I want a 3 gauge pod for my 01, I guess 2 would work. Emailed you, no response.

Talking with stereo shop, might get my own made, bonus is that they can get the gauge pod lot more sleek and right where I want them, minus is the cost $300 with tweeters moved and wraped in matching vinyl.

Let us know PLEASE!!!!
