Well, a couple weeks ago I decided I wanted to try to do something custom for my boost gauge. So I went and purchased a second vent to experiment with. It is now finished and installed. Heres some pictures I took along the way. Tell me what you think.













And here is what I used mostly to make it.

Your HIRED!!! http://********************/smile/emthup.gif That looks great and I think that there is enough area that you could still get a little flow out of it.... If I was as talaned as you I would make ten of those and sell them for $25.00 over cost and you would probably make a killing and even better yet offer a core charge and have them send you there original in return for a little $$$ then you could make another... Good job!!! http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Vent pod complete! (bpray9223)

Very clean looking. Great colour match too. Two thumbs up http://********************/smile/emthup.gif http://********************/smile/emthup.gif
It would help if the camera operater could lear how to focus though

If you have the open compartment next to the radio, you can put it in there. I used to have the cup holder but when to the salvage yard and pulled the open compartment from an S60.

i already have my wideband and boost guage in there. and i don't want any pods in my cluster so this would be the perfect place. and on top of that it looks so nice, almost like if it was oem.

Awesome. I may have to do that. Want to install me a boost gauge one of these days. Perhaps I'll try and get a smaller one so I can still get some decent airflow

No one seems to understand the purpose of macro mode. Just push the button with the little flower on it!

Re: (bpray9223)

Nice job, neat approach.

Out of curiosity, what kind of glue/epoxy did you use, as mine fell apart w/ my retro-in-progress, and what kind of paint did you use to match the stock color/finish?

Actually the only thing I used was a lot of hot glue. And for matching the color of the vent, I did not paint the PVC AT ALL. the only thing I did was take fine grit sand paper to take off the lettering that was on the lip and to give it a matte finish like the vent, and after that to restore the black color I took some tire shine spray and rubbed it on the PVC piece. I'm so happy how it matched the vent color so nicely.
