Default Pick'd up an Aerofoce gauge.

Bought this today...

Craigslist for 40 bucks. I can't wait to get this thing installed. The thing came with no instructions but there has to be a write-up somewhere on here! I can finally start modding

No writeup needed. Just plug n play.

I'm not sure sure if Dan is still doing this, but he does make custom pods.

I thought on my 98 I had to tap into something, like the radio or the HUD, to power the gauge?

I'm sure I can get it installed no problem but those write ups are just a nice guide line.

I did contact danthurs about getting a one pod a pillar. He said he would try to get around to it, but was very busy. That was a looooong time ago lol I will definitely contact him again soon. Even just finding a matching tan pillar is being a big problem for me let alone modding it. If I could get one from danthurs that would be amazinggggg!

If he isn't able to do it, I am sure there are other people that build them also. You may have to send in your trim piece first though.

Any one here good with that kind of work? You know, making it look as stock as possible, make it look like it was meant to be there.

If anyone is interested pm me

if it was me i would just get a cup mount and attach it in front of the stupid compass that no one uses. it wont look stock but it could be set back so it wont really be noticeable and it would be in your eyeline when driving

Hey I like that compass! lol love the 90s look
I already decided it needs to go in the pillar IMO everywhere else just looks out of place....
