I need at least 20 people willing to purchase and I am waiting on the final price. The years that have different interiors will have to have a separate run, also needing 20 people min per run. If the price is low enough I will buy a bunch, but I doubt that will happen. Iím just waiting for a response. I did ask the company to separate all the years and costs for me so they are in for some research. After I get the price I will have a pic for you and the cost. Once the cost is set then I will require people to officially contact me at the Domestic Performance E-mail [email protected]
I only take payment once we have 20 people together. I will most likely have my Visa and paypall accounts up at that time but if not the company who I am working with will have at least Visa.

TY

This was the response from the company who will make the pods for us. Dont worry I have looked around and these guys are very good. I was going to find the factory they use but figured this would be good enough.

ORDER INFORMATION:

Minimum order quantity is 20 per project. (Some * and wholesale purchases may require a higher minimum)

If both double and triple gauge holders are wanted each project requires the minimum paid orders.

All orders must be paid prior to project start.

Pre-sale pricing will include painting. Pricing will be determined after receipt of OEM pillar.

Most of our products range from $40-$60. After project is completed pricing will increase.

Shipping charges extra - Currently: $5.99 US, $10.99 Canada, $15.99 International

REQUIREMENTS:

Name, address, and contact information of project leader.

Follow-up will be with project leader only. (Please do not have others call for status)

OEM pillar from project leader. This will be use for manufacturing and is non-returnable.

Make, and year range of vehicle.

Color samples (at least 4"x4", OEM pillar preferred) of all colors to be painted up to 3.

Size of gauge hole diameter wanted (usually 2 1/16" and/or 60mm). Note: some * may not take

the 60mm size do to pillar limitations.

PRODUCTION SCHEDULE:

Rough mock-up will be made and sent to project leader.

* Place on pillar.

* Check for clearances and proper angle of gauge pods. **

* Note any changes needed on mock-up and document on paper.

* Sign and date changes or okay mock-up as is.

* Return to company.

Mold-making process - approx 3-4 weeks

Initial production run - approx 3-4 weeks

Finishing and shipping - approx 1 week after receipt of product.

*******IMPORTANT********

PRODUCTION SCHEDULING IS COMPLEX AND TIMES MAY BE (and often are) INCREASED DUE TO CONFLICTS IN THE SCHEDULES OF THE DIFFERENT MANUFACTURING PROCESSES INCLUDING THE NUMBER OF PROJECTS AHEAD OF YOURS, PRODUCTION DELAYS AND RE-TOOLING. THEREFORE, WE CANNOT GAURANTEE A DELIVERY DATE.

PLEASE GIVE AN ESTIMATE BUT DO NOT PROMISE A CONCRETE DATE TO YOUR GROUP!

SO first thing I guarantee they will be ready by.........LOL

Once I get all the info regarding the years the inferior pillar on the driverí* side were different then I will set up categories per years. Like I think 92-99 is one bunch but I have to make sure.

Once that is done I will require as noted before a group of 20 before going any further. Once I have the group of 20 then I will send in a pillar representing that group.. Then they will let me know what the price is. I have not let you know the company name because until this is over they don't want to be bugged. LOL
Oh one other thing I will also be posting any other vehicles using the same pillars so we can get to the 20 mark quicker. I think Buick Le Sabre and Oldsmobile have the same pillar.

** All mock ups will be checked on more than one vehical so we can be sure. I dont want anyone left with something that wont fit. so if the year spread was 92-99 then a 1992-1996-1999 would all check the mockup.

Count me in for a 2002!

I'll probably go with a two-gauge pod, but could fill a third hole if I had to.

Hey, guys! Count me in for one of the graphite ones. I am fine with the 2 pod - Trans temp and fuel mix ratio will go quite nicely in there....2 1/16 gauge size is good. I know quite a few of you out there a from the Great White North, but we Southerners never got to the Metric system.
