Best looking gauge pods that I have seen.

those are real nice. We had a group buy about 10 years ago on a triple gauge A pillar pod. They used the pillar cover from my parts SC to make them, so I got mine for free....I don't know who made them. It's kind of hard to see, but I think they came out pretty good

I like yours also. Might be the same company. Look identical!

They may be...in better lighting they do look the same other than the third gauge pod. I should have done oil temp, water temp, with the volts, but those would have required a bit more work. I ran a T on the boost, so they both work. I don't think that would make it inaccurate, and my boost/vac didn't change as the car normally ran before the extra boost gauge

Just ordered my gauge pod in grey. $61 shipped or it was $8 cheaper in black. Figured I would match my interior. Best looking pods out there.

The gray does not match very well, a rattle can would have been cheaper. I made the mistake and paid the extra cash also.

Take your color code and go to SEM and find the correct one. If you call them with the year of your car and the interior code they will give you the can number to get.

This link just shows some colors. http://www.wheelskin.com/sem-15000.html

The primer is important as well.

How well did it end up matching? Grey can be off as the cars have a few different grey color interiors.

It is darker than the grey in my car. Not a problem though. I will paint over it. Thought it was worth a try.

Which primer would you recommend for painting the interior components? My desired color is opel gray

Thanks,

Tom what I have used is the SEM. The part number I believe is 39693.

I believe this is it. It was 10 years ago, so memory is a bit fuzzy.............. http://www.ebay.com/itm/SEM-39693-SELF-ETCHING-PRIMER-PAINT-AEROSOL-SPRAY-CAN/200312483987
