    Default Made myself a gauge pod

    Bought a Maptun boost gauge from Neo brothers months ago and never got round to fitting it.

    Wasn't really sure how I wanted to mount it, then I thought back to the gauge I had in my Corsa VXR, mounted in the heater vent...


    Decided I wanted to do it that way again so out came the tools and some spare black 5mm acrylic and away I went, shaped a piece of acrylic to sit behind the drivers side heater vent (very snuggly I might add) marked up the centre and used a holesaw to cut out the centre, had to remove both horizonatal and vertical fins obviously, kept them to one side incase I ever put it back to standard.

    Here's the finished product...

    Fitted back into car


    Just need to wire it up now

    Thanks mate! Really happy with it, it does fit well and doesn't look out of place, can't wait to get it wired in, night lighting will fit in perfect with my blue SMD's

    Well beleive it or not I still haven't got this plumbed in, it's been sitting in place just not wired in, kind of lost the love for the last couple of months tbh, got loads of things I want to do but not enough time/money to do them, I'm going to try and get some jobs done tommorow, one of them being the gauge, I have 3 wires, black, orange and red, the red and black are ignition live and earth, the orange goes to the lights to allow the gauge to switch from white daytime running to blue night time running, question is, which colour wire on the clocks plug does this go to?

    Anyone?

    I trial wired it, black wire on back on clocks multi plug it ideal for ignition live, earth is easy enough to find but don't know where to wire the light wire to, this is the one that controls the switch from white to blue light when you switch the lights on.

    I've heard people mention the grey & yellow wire, tried tapping into that but does nothing ?
