Well I dug deeper and I have come up wit this.

This A-pillar 2 gauge pod is the first ever offered for the 1987-91 Pontiac Bonneville, Buick Le Sabre, Park Avenue, Oldsmobile 88, and Oldsmobile 98. This unit is a completely new pillar so there are no ugly seams. We are sure we are providing the best product because we use the originator of the concept. Lo-Tek. Currently this will be a group purchase so there will be a wait for all 30 to be ordered before the product is processed. We also offer gauges on the same interior product page. Enjoy

That is the write up on my new site you will notice the Park Avenue and the Oldsmobile 98 are also covered. but you will also notice according to the dealer that the pillars will not work with the 98-99. It is also said to not work with 1992. Now on the issue of 92 I will find out what I can do.

87-91 on the Pontiac is ok though.
I will get a list of the other cars that the 87-91 crosses with.

Yes I will provide a 98-99 unit too but it will cost a bit more. Sorry I canít help it.

Ty

Maybe a superior Rat like could help us?

Are the colors going to be determined by the first run? Or are you just going to run mix?

There are three color options that I am allowed to pick so if you can find out the color code of your interior and tell me the year of your car we can all pick the three colors. This way you get the color choice. That said I can have other colors done but it would cost a bit more. Just like the GP deal. Anyway I hope that answers your question. I was thinking of doing a carbon fiber sticker option as an alernitive to painting the pillar. Any other ideas? Oh I will also offer the products needed to finish the deal including guages and wiring stuff.

Yes the 2000-2003/92/and the 98-99 will be covered too.

As a last option, vinyl flexible spray paint is available in all interior colors. The stuff sounds stupidly cheap, but the stuff works. If someone needs the 4th color, this'll work.

I was told approximately 2 weeks till I get a mock up so I can take a photo and show you. I am also bargaining on the cost for the gauges.

Ok Lotek is still willing to do our pillar pods but they have now decided to tell me what they really think / feel. Personally I donít usually do business with people who say one thing and do another but they seem to be holding off on making our mock up due to the assumption of the lack of interest. "Family car" seemed to be the words mentioned. So once the orders for the part reach 30 then we can go ahead. ...
That said the finance system on my site is under construction so it will take a bit before its fixed. Ill let you know when. In the mean time I will be setting up deals with more reputable gauge companies who talk at face value who may be also interested in making our product. I have a line on a few, but want to find the best. I will remedy the problem with as much discretion as possible. I wouldnít be so mad if they had just been honest from the get go and said ya we will make a mock up but we need 30-50 orders down before we will run a order. But they said they would send me a mock up and go from there. So sorry for the incompetence I will not be able to show a mock up until we have orders and if you are not happy with the look you will be able to pull from the list with a full refund.

Speedguy,
How many orders do you currently have? I am still interested, but I also want to find a boost guage and manifold temp guage that matches the red lighting in our Bonnies. Let me know where you stand on these two points. If you wish you may PM me or post here.

BTW, I'll be coming out to Fresno in March or April. I would love to meet up with you if you are available. Not certain if I can convince my wife to ride in the Bonneville for that trip, we will be showing off our new son to my folks who live in Coarsegold, just north on highway 41. She wants to take her minivan again . With two kids (five and a newborn) she wants to have a tv/vcr available for the five year old. She has a point, but I think the Bonneville is more stable on the road and much more comfortable to drive.
