Looks good Bill, but not stock.

Place one on the right side and it will look like a Hippo peeking from below the water line.

I was going to paint mine the same colour as the dash but now that I see it in contrasting black, I like it better.
I must be different cause I like contrast in an add on accessory.........Each to his own.
.....I hid the crappy job I did with a Decal.

Please...realize this is the first run at it. It'* far from finsihed. You can not see some small imperfections in the bondo that need to be filled etc. Those that have done work like Paul, know the ugliness shows itself 1000 times better when painted.

This is the reason behind more sanding with finer grit. However at this point, I'm not sure if I should dump this one and restart on another with the two pods on one side or thrash the once side of this and add on the other pod.

LOL Shadd..

So far installed in a semi finished state. Need to add another pod, meanwhile I have been trying it out and all is good. I'll need to ensure there'* spacing between the two gauges.
