aight i was looking around on po.com (even thoe im not a member, F*ck the 7 dollar enrollment thing) i saw this pic right here:





if u really think about it, it shouldnt be that hard to make, take three cheap ebay gauge pods (single ones), cut three holes in the dash piece, glue them in there, and then just mold them in there with bondo. am i wrong when i say that?? maby i should try it. the only problem i can think of is, making it look stock, spraypaint is gonna look to shiny, if only i can get my hands on some oem honda plastic... but my theory is correct no?

ohh and this is what they have a group buy on:


i think those vent gauges are so fugly and they want 500 bux for it:eek:mg:

Thats completely made from ABS plastic... NO bondo or any of that other junk that cracks and peels with sunlight and heat... Ive experienced it 1st hand way to many times... I guess go for it and try to make your own if you want.. But, its usually a much more intensive project that it appears to start down this road...


I think $500 is a little bit pricey... I couldnt see more than $200 for it, but at the same time the work that shop does is absolutely awesome...

Fiberglass and paint it body color. Or try to find a paint that matches your interior... there's bound to be one.

Instead of starting off and not knowing anything.. try learning something and starting off from there before making huge mistakes.
