Official Group Buy: Custom Center Triple Gauge Pod

Official Group Buy for the Custom Center Triple Gauge Pod is finally here!!!

I accept Paypal ONLY! Please add the 3% paypal fee to your payment! Please PM me or email me at: [email protected] to place your order! Thank you!

Please understand that these are made to orders.

Below is the general idea of what the gauge pod is made from to show the quality and fitments of it.

-The original OEM center dash cover will be used to insure the fitment to be 100% perfect.
-The Lotek gauge pod will be modified and cut so it can be molded flush with the OEM center dash cover.
-The finish will be in jet black which will match the original piano black color!

This pod will only fit 52 mm gauges! Please make sure first!

- The price for the Custom Center Triple Gauge Pod is: $430.00 shipped! (Painted Jet Black)

NEW UPDATE!!!: The gauge pod can be done in different colors upon request as long as the color code is provided! For other colors other than black, it will cost an additional $30.00 extra on top of the painted price!

- The price with the option for not painted (primer) is: $360.00 shipped! (Primer)

However, there will be 3 options for you to save money on this pod!

The following three options are optional:

#1 This option will help you save $50.00! because I will not have to provide an oem center dash cover to complete the gauge pod modification. Instead, you will send in your oem center dash cover to me, so work can be done on it, then it will be sent back to you. The estimated turnaround time will be 14 days from the day I received it. You are responsible for the first shipping cost, but I will take care of the second shipping cost which is shipping the final product back to you.

*Note: For the first option You will not have to obtain the Lotek gauge pod because that will be taken care of by me to complete the final product! The cost of the final product will include: the Lotek gauge pod (which will be used for the custom gauge pod) and painted jet black (unless otherwise notified for it to not to be painted).

- The price for option #1 is: $380.00 shipped! (Painted Jet Black)
- The price for option #1 not painted (primer) is: $310.00 shipped! (Primer)


#2 If the first option does not work for you, the second option for you to save $50.00! is to send in your oem center dash cover to me after you receive the final product. Once I receive the oem center dash cover, I will then reimburse you with a discount!

*Note: For the second option I will be providing the Lotek gauge pod and the oem center cover. The cost of the final product will include: the Lotek gauge pod (which will be used for the custom gauge pod), the OEM center dash cover , and painted jet black (unless otherwise notified for it to not to be painted).

- The price for option #2 is: $430.00 shipped! (Painted Jet Black)
- The price for option #2 not painted (primer) is: $360.00 shipped! (primer)
(You will be reimbursed with a $50.00 discount once I receive your OEM center dash cover, so price after discount for painted will be $380.00 shipped! and price after discount for not painted (primer) will be $310 shipped)


#3 Option number 3 will help you save $100.00!, it is for those who already have the lotek gauge pod installed or not (does not matter) can send in the whole thing for work to be done on it. This option will be the most affordable because the oem center dash cover and the lotek gauge pod will not need to be provided.

Note: For the third option I will not need to include the lotek gauge pod and the oem center dash cover due to you providing your own. The cost of the final product will include: painted jet black (unless otherwise notified for it to not to be painted).

- The price for option #3 painted is: $330.00 shipped! (Painted Jet Black)
- The price for option #3 not painted (primer) is: $260.00 shipped! (Primer)


Below are some pics of how it looks like:








let the list begin...

Thanks!

Terence

Corrected and thanks for catching it for me! This was posted last night and I must have messed up... It was my fault but I will honor it to the people who have contacted me with the order of option #3!

Thank you!

The reason for the cost is because of the OEM center cover is used for the custom fabrication in order to obtain 100% perfect fitment! Also the lotek gauge pod and paint is included.

Who knows I might consider fabricating one that actually fits with the OEM navi center cover in the future....

I dont blame you it just when I add gauges and all adapters it will come around 1000$.

But it looks great. I like it but I was hoping It could cost a lil bit less than that.

Good luck with the sale

are you placing the fiberglass directly to the plastic? Are you at all worried that it will separate if bent?

The gauge pod is reinforced by silicone adhesive and layered over with fiberglass fabric reinforcement on top and bottom. On top of all that there is another final layer of fiberglass filler. It has been through the flexibility test and it holds up strong! Thanks!

edit: I have had the gauge pod installed on my car for over 2 years and it is still holding strong
