im getting ready to install my a pillar pod this weekend. i need input from anyone else who has installed one.

mine appears that i have to screw it to the existing pillar plastic while cutting holes through it for the wires/copper line for the oil guage to run. any i may have to trim it down to fit properly without rubbing my dash.

yes ill be painting it to match the rest of the interior.

Looks like the one I have which I havn't "attached". I have guages installed and wired up, but it's just kind of pushed up on the pillar, nothing but friction holding it in place. Haven't decided how I want to attach it yet because I want it to be easy to remove if I need to take the guages out and I would prefer not to use screws to hold it on.

I did the same but but it rubbed my dash. Thought maybe a tiny peice of 3m tape and foam on bottom gauge pod for insulation against rubbing.

do not use the types of gauges that have the copper line coming inside the vehicle, they will always leak. Installing gauge pods is a PITA, you do have to fit it over the factory A-pillar, very much a trial and error. When I did mine, I reinstalled the factory cover, then put the pod unit overtop, adjusted it to where I wanted it (fit/finish/appearance) then drilled a hole.

I ran a plastic line gauge for 4yrs and never broke it.

I like the live results of the mechanical gauges vs the issues electical ones can have with bad sensors
