Default Gauge pod (finished & painted)

I still have to sand it down, & then paint it to match the interior, but it fits perfect.
the gauges are pointing up a little, but its almost not noticable. But for my first gauge pod, I feel satisfied.

what are you gonna paint it with.

Did you say you were going to make a mold of it, so you can reproduce it? I'd be interested, maybe.

I do have a mold & can do more pods. Im not looking to make a profit so if you pay for the materials & shiping, Ill be happy to make you one. (it would be a raw copy, so you would have to fix imperfections, sand it, & paint it.)
I bought the paint in the painters suply store. They made a spray can with the color I gave them. (came out exactly)

I agree. That is the most professional, stock looking pod I've seen to date. Nice work!
