Default HUD pod vendor

Would this work on our cars that have the HUD? Wonder how similar the spacing is between the GP'* and the Bonnies....

Looks nice, I doubt the A pillar to hud spacing is the same as well as the curve of the dash.

Maybe the bottom edges can be "re-worked" to follow the flow of the bonne dash.

i was looking at my dash. im pretty sure that if it did fit, it would still be right over top of the window defroster vent.

without the pillar pods its pretty nice and non obtrusive. It wouldn't be hard to make one for the 96-99 that was the whole piece that goes across the windshield . The HUD bump would go all the way to the left. Maybe raising the HUD part about an inch and turning the pod piece toward the driver so it does the wrap thing.

Maybe you don't remember that Series I PCMs don't track all that much info compared to Series II.

Honestly when I first saw the post, I was hoping it meant someone came out with gauges that would project onto the window, adding info.

i think it looks tacky, and i would easily get a pillar pod before that...

but if you got a pillarpod, and that system... just get a laptop
