So that looks like 3 triples lol

What gauges are you guys going to put in?

Right now I'm planning on vaccuum on top of the SC right at the vaccuum tree, a vaccuum/boost gauge for the port under the SC snout because my cluster gauge stops at 3 PSI, and maybe an Aeroforce if I can get a decent price on one

Funny thing is...once you mod and really get into the scene... less is more. If I were to do it again, I'd have a single. All I really want is one Aeroforce. When you are in boost, yup you are. You don't need to see the gauge everytime..same with other things.

Since you guys are talking about gauge pods. Why do pillars? They are so Hondaesc.. lol

I think the main problem here is going to be to get 20-30 people who want the exact same gauge pod. Everybody has their preferences and may want slightly different versions.

Well, nobody "needs" to do anything. Like Brian said, people are going to want to be able to customize the pods. Some people want a single pod, some a dual, some a triple, and some even want a quad. There are also a few different styles that would have to be made even for a standard set. The 92-99 Bonnevilles have different A-pillars than the 2000-2005. There are also different color trim sets, most people don't want a gauge pod that doesn't match their trim. It would be convenient if they made up the templates for the different years and could color match the factory trim, but I don't think it would be worth their time. Even if we had 20 people that wanted them, they would need many different style gauge pods to make them all happy. Personally, I would want the texture to match as well.

yeah you right but they need to think what is better nothing or at list something can fit. About the color you can paint your self what is important is the fit and look. Some people want double some triple oh well we need to work it out whit that can get the triple and use just two gauges like i will do.For me is not that the problem because i can paint mine and use two gauges with the triple and maybe later on add the other one but the fit is important and is better to have that then use one gauge in the air vent.

hey man i understand that you are trying to help out, but please stop using the word "need" we all love custom touches on our cars and some prefer to make there own or get a generic store bought to modify in. I am sure that there will be members interested in what you found but it is certainly not a need to have this exact company as the supplier.

It'* all about personal preference. I think you have a good idea, but your going to have a hard time getting people on board for a gauge pod if it can't be color matched, and designed with the appropriate amount of gauges for them.
