Gauge Pod Installation

I just purchased the Gauge Pod from Beto's store (Thelostrican). Beto thanks a lot the Gauge Pod looks great and a better price than MVP motorsports. However, I would like to know if anyone would know how to install it. I was going to try doing it without any advice. But a little help wouldn't hurt. thumbsup

stun, to remove the stock pillar plastic just poke ur fingers through the very top and pull away from the pillar, there are 2 clips underneath that hold it on. then put the new pillar pod on, make sure the bottom sleeve slides into the correcto hole.

no problem dude, i should also mention, that the clips that get pulled off ususally stay stuck in the holes, so it's a good idea to pull those out too, they are in there really tight, but just pull hard and they will come out. latez

how much did you paid for that Gauge Pods and is there any way you can hook me up w/ one. I'll paid for it w/ shipment of course. please let me know. And does anybody out there know how to install a 5" tachometer (auto gauge). I'm confused w/ the whole wiring ordeal!

Life is like a dream...Hopefully when you wake up it isn't like mine.

I plan to put the new Blitz Electronic Racing Meter DC. These gauges are HOT. They were featured on the latest Turbo Magazine project Celica. However, they are expensive. I plan to purchase them from www.autoall.com. It's the cheapest I've found them. And they have free shipping. Check them out... http://autoall.com/store/moreinfo/gauges/blitz19206.html
However, if you know of a better place let me know. And regarding your question about gauge installations check this site out... http://www.carreview.com/projecteclipse%5Eboostgaugecrx.aspx

I think the 5" face tachometer would be installed the same way but would be placed wherever you like. I hope I've helped. Let me know if you have another questions. I'll ask my boyz around here in Jersey... thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup

One thing is that i'm clueless on the wiring issue. So is there anyway when you install your gauges take pictures of the installing procedure and post it up here? Like in the INSTALLING section in this page? I know it's a lot of trouble, but just asking (=. I just don't like messin' w/ wiring and electrical stuff since i have very limited knowledge on it. anyway thanks for helping me!
