Larry, I have a new/unused one from Elite that I would sell.

Larry:

I drilled a hole in the center of the pod and into the oem pillar. The pillar looks like metal, however, it is a composite of some sort. The screw pulls the pod onto the pillar and it looks factory. I used a black oxide screw and you can hardly see it is there. No matter how much I heated the material I couldn't get it to fit, the screw solved the fit issue.

The one from elite doesn't fit worth a shit. I have one in may car (the back collecting dust) I think he uses auto meter from a camaro tells you to heat with a gun but thats way to much work. I don't understand why autometer just can't make one. Auto meter makes one for the steering column but with it you can't see the speedo.

The one from Elite is just a mustang pod with a viper logo on it. And the fit sucks. The pods I've got (though they aren't installed) are from a 94-95 mustang. Both the sngle and the dual pods look like they will fit with _minor_ massaging.

The auto meter steering column pod cuases the guage to rub if you use any guage that protrudes slightly (like an autometer :rolleyes).

Here is a pic of a steering column pod. Made for an '01 Dodge Ram, but fits the Viper perfectly. Only one gauge though and it does partially block the speedo.

Wouldn't new be unused? Or do you have some new slight used ones?


Or is that like a slightly used Virgin?

I said it that way so some of the s l o w e r thinking Florida folks would understand /images/graemlins/laughing.gif If you are selling a car that had new tires installed three weeks ago.....would you advertise it as having new tires even though they are "used" ??? :nod:

Larry, I will get that shipped out to you, SIR.
