I apologize for the delay, but yours will be painted tomorrow as well as Brice's. It will go out most likely on thursday priority mail.

Dansy's pod will be going out most likely tomorrow or the day after since it will not be painted.

some teaser pics will be uploaded tomorrow.... stay tuned

The short answer I don't know......But will have the car freshly painted so may as well got that stuff at the same time.

I'm going to completely change my car in the next 2 years....I deploy a lot for short period, so any less (time wise)is pretty much impossible....I got a VR with red/blk interior and I don't really know what I'm going to do inside (aside from the gauge and removing the Nav and Bose system)installing a metra double pins and most likely the Kenwood 8120 and a bunch of new speaker and amps....

I'm just about decided on the body pieces and I'm going the supercharger route for sure but then again I haven't completely decide between Petitt and Hymee......I should be done in about 2 years....complete exhaust a whole wack inside the engine bay....coilover and sway bar/links....wheels well like I said the whole new cars

I'm very much mechanically incline so I'm doing the mechanic myself...paint and radio will be pro stuff...

Will make a tread for sure...and yes I have been debating for a while about either replacing the 8 with something like a porsche or building my 8 like nuts......I did tried some cars and in the end the 8 is pay for so why not just get crazy and poor huge $$ into a car I do love.

I did own a RX7 1985 SE for 5 years and I always regretted selling it....so I wont make the same mistake twice

The gauges which I am using are the prosport 52mm gauges.

The difference between the two are quite huge...

The lotek pod alone will be glued ontop of the center dash cover and just sits there. Most people including me find it irritating seeing the lotek pod just sitting ontop of the center dash cover because it is quite obvious to see gaps around the edges and edges may be popping out due to heat (if you live in a hot area).

The custom gauge pod uses the lotek pod which is cut and fiberglass molded onto the center dash cover. Therefore, it becomes bonded into one single piece instead of two. There will not be any crease or gaps showing at all and all edges will be flush and smooth in result of it being one quality piece. In the end, the custom gauge pod will go perfectly with the interior of the 8 and especially the face of the radio if you request it in black (but other colors can be an option also).

Just a side note: I have had the pod for over 2.5 years and it still looks as if I first installed it.

Thanks!

Terence
