Look at cell phone, act paniced, get everything together in an extreme hurry, start jogging out of class as you answer the phone in a paniced (sp?) state, and through the doors you're good. If you're good enough, you'll get an email from the prof later asking if everything is okay :D

Looks pretty good!

What material did you use? It appears as if you did it in 3rds? I started with a semi-stretchy material on top of a felt. It held okay, but the tiny wrinkles bothered me, so I sanded it all smooth and painted mine. I did both pillars to match, I'm quite pleased with the hard solid appearance of it now.

I used a nylon fabric weave material...very stretchy when heat applied. The stitching took the majority of my time, and i did do it in 3rds. But I molded is the same way you advised me too in a PM. I am very happy with the outcome and I cant wait to do more!

It looks very nice, closer to what I had initially intended for mine. But I'm such a perfectionist and material wasn't giving me the outcome I wanted.

I'm glad to see I was able to inspire someone! Keep up the good work. :thumbup:

I agree. Make a Smartphone holder or something.
The only realistic problem with that is if the air bag goes off, your phone goes flying. The gauges are held in place pretty well, I'm not worried about them turning into projectiles.

But still... Hey, how about a built in GoPro rig?

$720.00 You can have the Entire Pod

$720 one can have the Entire Dash Turbo Pod from the latest Sport Cars - Oil Temp , Boost , Fuel Pressure - all gauges included with sending units .
( Still would have to mold the Center in )

I looked at several of those - the VW seemed to be the best - Closest Fit - the Gauges are partially
Submerged so it doesn't Block View - a lot . VW won't allow Items ordered separately .

A Pillar is looking better all the Time .

Right Now - anyone got anything on Volvo Temp sending Units .

This is much as I could find , so far .

Temperature sensor OE 83420 16020 - still checking .
