I wanted a Center Gauge pod that would allow for 3 Gauges and unfortunately nothing was available. So I decided that I'd make my own. For those of you who might be interested, here's a step by step guide:

1) First I made a template of what I wanted out of paper. I made sure to try it in the car a few times to check all the dimensions. This is what I came up with.

2) I opted to make the gauge pod out of Acrylic, but you may choose a Sheet of Aluminum as well. I drew out my pattern on the Acrylic Sheet and then Cut out the sections not needed.

3) I then took out my heat gun and applied heat to both sides and then molded the bends by pushing against the concrete floor in my garage.

Good job...! A nice clean look...I like the black better than aluminum.

As I read your post, I cant help but thinking how nice it must be to actually have Innovate gauges that work properly...!
