Gauge pods

Anybody make an A-pillar gauge pod for a 78 F-150, or am I going to have to make one myself out of fiberglass or something?

When I put a pillar in my 78 Cougar, I bought a 'universal' pillar, used a heat gun to shape it, trimmed as needed, painted and installed it. Looks really good. Might be your best bet.

I saw at advance last time I was there, they had single and dual pods. May get one of each and fiberglass them together or something. I'm going to have two fuel pressure gauges and get a wideband something like your aem

well nevermind on this idea. I just ordered three of the autometer carbon fiber cups. I couldn't find any pods that would work. They would all end up so they are pointing 45 degrees toward the ceiling if I used them.
