Whats going on with these? Looks like we have a large group in the 92-99 bracket. I'm pretty sure the pillars should be the same for those years. 00+'* have gotta be different, and well as 91 and earlier, since the body style were completely different.

Keep us posted! Is there a site we can go to see what count we are up to ?

Ok here is the deal. I am waiting for a price from the manufacture and they are away on holiday until the 3rd of Sept. LOL as the earlier posted information says there needs to be a list of 20 people and they need three pillars. I am going to use the choices of the group on this forum to decide what colors to use. The group purchase will be set up on the site so that when you go to interior items for the vehicle you have you can buy into the group purchase that purchase also comes with a receipt and a product number. The group purchase monitor will be on the right side of every screen on the site. It will use the product number to indicate how many purchases were made. In the case of the pillars it will take 20 and then we do it. I have already sent one pillar but I will be sending more for color choices. So far, Yes I am using 86-91/ 92-99/ 2000-03 as separate categories. I am also offering to do crossover but I have not had the time to see if the Buick and Oldsmobile h bodies have the same pillars. I bet the Buick does. That would increase the numbers considerably. Because I promised to have the site up for viewing the pillar option will not be operational due to lack of price information, but once I get the price there will be a purchase option added.

TY

Ok I have sent in a pillar for the 92-99. I will get a price from them once they receive it. it should take a few days. I figure this time next week on the pod price. I will also advertise it on e-bay so we can get the #* needed to make it happen. Once I get a price I am going to need to send the "blank" around to a few different people to make sure it will fit. I need a 1997-99 person i will need a 1992-94 person and a 1996 person. I have a 1995. Actually I have a friend who has a 1994. I also have access to a 1992. So I only need a volunteer to try out this stock blank on there 1997-99. Hector??

Now for the 87-91 crowds yes sent one off for that too. But I do need people with that car to try out a blank to make sure it fits.

Just a side not so far Iím into this for $300.00 between the two lines. My reason for mentioning this is I am wiling to make it happen but the response has to be there for me to continue. I also will be passing the cost on to each price. I will also offer a 2000-2003 but I am waiting on the finding of a pillar cover from one. Soon very soon you will have the option to purchase a pillar pod for your car 87-2003. As for the Oldsmobile 88 and 98 I donít have any on hand to compare to so if anyone knows of people owning them for the 87-91/ and 92-99 I would appreciate some of them trying the blanks to make sure they fit as well.

Around 10, but I know there are at least 20 people on this planet within each who would like to have a gauge pod. They should cost a bit more than the gp pods, but the price will be confirmed probably next week. The reason I put up my cost so far is I wanted to share what is involved and that I am serious about providing real results for our cars. It also helps the customer to understand what is involved. The cost to each customer to compensate will be around 5 dollars. So the price + 5 dollars. Not a big jump. My time is free. Iím not asking for a pat on the back just want the people of this site to know that if you want it I can bring it on.
