Very excited! Got triple pillar pod installed this morning. I got one of those package deals from Glowshift, with the pillar that goes in up on the lefthand side. All my interior lighting done in violet, so this will add to the look a lot, as well as the functionality of the gauges themselves.

It took forever, because first I had to save for the gauge package and gather all the other little bits and pieces, then save for the install (I decided I'm just not up to doing this one myself)..... Then yesterday I took it in at the appt. time-9am... I got a call at 3, after not having my car all day, and the guy at the shop said the person in front of me's vehicle was giving them problems and taking forever, and because of this guys van, they hadn't even started on mine. Because of the inconvenience (and cuz I am a good customer and buy a lot of parts there) they gave me a break on the install $$.... Which is cool with me !

When I went to drop her off this morning I saw the van that caused all the delay in their lot, and we almost peed on ourselves laughing ... OMG It's one of those old white (crappy paint job, spots all over it down to the metal) Astro vans, and somebody put huge white and chrome dub floaters on this thing... It is the funniest **** thing- total turd of a van on huge shiny floaters....I know those rims cost three times what that van is worth. I'm dying to know what they were trying to do to it yesterday....

I was thinking of getting the pillar wrapped, but the black plastic matched my dash exactly- even down to the texture in the plastic, so I left it as is- and the gauges are white faces with the colored glow.

I think my triple pod is the main reason my 240sx got broken into and gutted. Stuff like that stands out and low life thieves will steal anything. $200 in gauges ended up costing me over a grand in interior, race seats, 5 point harness and audio. I hope you have better luck.

That sucks- I keep a car cover on mine- might get a lock for it. I also have it garaged in a private guarded garage during the day and covered in front of a well lighted house with 2 dogs and video surveillance at night. Even so, I know this crap can happen... Also my tint is fairly dark and its hard to see in. I guess I just do what I can and hope for the best.

Wow that blows. Thieves are bottom feeding scum if you ask me.
