    Default Twin 52mm gauge pod ?

    Anyone know if such a thing exists for the Vectra specifically. Found loads of twin pods on Ebay for other cars that are a direct fit, but none for the Vec C.

    I currently have my boost gauge in a single pod at the bottom of the drivers side A pillar, but want to add a voltmeter too and it would be neater in a nice twin pod.

    Anyone done this and got pics or anyone know of any nice ones?

    The ideal sort of thing (I think) would be something like this (but this ones for a Focus) although not as bulky.

    i am sure with what you have done so far you could make one, or even make one for another car fit?

    Yes probably, but I was hoping to actually have an easy job fitting something for once as I always seem to end up doing things the hard way

    Hmm, need to try and find a Corsa C to have a look at the pillar and compare them, looks quite a bit rounder in that picture to me.

    I bought one as close as i could, basically it was universal. I then got the fibreglass isopon tub out and moulded and trimmed it to fit then sprayed it matt black

    Don't suppose you've got any pics Nige? Work in progress and finished item? I don't mind doing some customising if I have to (and it looks like I do), just want to try and make it as easy as possible (for once) and end up with something that looks good of course.

    I made a pillar pod for a single 60mm gauge, I was going to do a double but i bought a multifunction gauge instead.. same principle though..

    This it doing it last trial fitting before i put a visor on it to stop the reflection and gave it a final paint job etc.. It was held on with sticky back velcro so that the pillar airbag would still function but I am looking at another method of securing it now. It does stay there on it own though
