ý MADE A NEW GAUGE POD FOR THE PILLAR!

I understood that I would be happy with a pillar pod.<p>It was a difficult project but the result is good.<p>I used a standart pillar pod for the base.I cut it and make a mould from the fiber.Then I bought a new pillar cover from the Volvo and worked on the old one.<p>I made the design,make a mould and covered it with the same cloth.(the most difficult point was to find the matching cloth.)<p>Hope you like it.<p><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/826/p7170808dd5.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img374.imageshack.us/img374/5782/p7170809xq0.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/2523/p7170810pm6.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/8374/p7170811jw6.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/2533/p7170812es9.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img385.imageshack.us/img385/7263/p7240813cw3.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/8631/p7240816nv2.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img385.imageshack.us/img385/2864/p7240817wb6.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img385.imageshack.us/img385/2977/p7240819zh1.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/7845/p7240820yx7.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/7462/spa0050kt1.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/6391/spa0052ov3.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/6526/spa0054cw7.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/6654/spa0055kp1.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><br>

Again Xeno, a most excellent and professional job! Way to go! <p>BTW, I'm sure that if you sold your dash pod on here in the classifieds you'd definitley find a taker if you wanted to get rid of it. There were many appreciative comments for that one. <p>Sweet job on the stitching too! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> (you should have used blue to match the steering wheel <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> )

Xeno that's beautiful. <p>Its just terrible that none of the aftermarket companies take the time to develop something that we can ALL buy!!!<p>In regards to that actually, I thought the airbag came out of the middle pillar on each side (closest to the the drivers left shoulder) and not the A-pillar...apparently Im wrong tho because everyone seems to freak about the airbag not working properly with gauges on the A-pillar.<p>Again Xeno...damn fine lookin product
