Thanks, it only took around 2 hours for me to remove the interior and install the new one.
And no I don't have the 10mm spacers anymore.

Custom Dual Vent Gauge Pod

So yesterday I decided I was going to make a Custom Dual Vent Gauge Pod....
Here's what I started with...



Here's everything molded together initially before filing and sanding...



Test Fit...


Pics throughout the process, thought I had it finished yesterday, then test fit it again today and decided I didn't like the angle of it, so I cut the vent and gauge pods apart to angle it more towards me for a better view of the gauges, didn't really take pics of that part though...












And now for the finished product...

Yea it is, It worked amazingly well... The amount of time you have to work with it is awesome, like 2-3hrs and it's like working with clay. It takes 24hrs to fully cure but I found if you put it in the oven for 10-15min at 100 degrees and then let it sit for 20-30min to cool, it's basically cured and you're able to work with it, as in sanding and filing it down.

Oh and Thanks Greg because I got the idea to use it from your thread.
