This seems like a lot of work to just have those aux gauges, has anyone done just the A pillar mount style or I recall seeing a piece that replaces the lower dash cubby area with at least 1 guage pod, the area behind that is very tight not sure what is possible there but again seems like a much easier way to go than the entire dash swap out deal.

Actually I still have the prototype and the piece the prototype will need to be matched to. The rest of the trimming will have to be completed to make the dimensions match one-for-one to clip into the Caprice dash, then the prototype will have to be sent for CAD work. I just was sidelined on other projects and boxed it, the rest of the work can be completed probably without too much difficulty. HOW we get there is the issue I'll need to do some off-line discussions with a few people on.

That's awesome, Eric. Glad you're still working on it.

I just ordered the whole kit to put the HSV E3 pod and trim in my car. I think it's an awesome looking setup, completely changes the look of the interior.
