Default Teh Pillar Pod to end them all

so i have had many stages of Pillar Pods....lets review...

here you have the standard aftermarket Pillar Pod slapped on to the stock pillar.....


not that great looking....

so you try and improve on that and throw some SEM paint on it to make it look a little better





Looks OK but still not awesome....so you say **** it and make your own.....

put the pillar on and let the filler fly.....

here is the pod after the filler and sanding to be smooth as a babies behind

the gagues are One of a Kind that were made by an Former Autometer Employee (who is also a member here) that were specifically designed to match the Bonneville Interior
