I'm a little confused here: Are you selling the pods separately, or actually putting gauges in as well?

I'd love to have someplace to put an ammeter and a voltmeter, but getting the gauges themselves was never a problem; it'* just that no one was making a custom pillar pod for the Bonneville. Last time I saw the topic come up here, the story was that someone (possibly you) would be able to gear up a production run once 50 (?) people committed to a purchase. Has that changed?

Okay, I got off my butt and read the previous postings on this thread...

Anyhow, as soon as the details are finalized, I'd love to order a pillar pod. I'd need the tan color. I assume the gauge cutouts would be 2" in diameter.

I voted for ammeter and voltmeter because the SSEi has neither (the boost gauge takes the place of the voltmeter at the right-hand end of the dash). My car'* on its fourth alternator now, and I'd kind of like to know when this one is dying _before_ it strands me in a parking lot late at night...

This time around I am working with enthusiastic people who I can trust. So this time it will happen. Pillars should be arriving at the shop today or tomorrow the molder is waiting and then I will send out a mock up to test fit on a few cars. Yes an actual mock up you can see and play with.
