I found on eBay a place that stocks full pillar replacement dual gauge pods for our cars. I had contacted the distributor through email asking about if we could set up a group buy and this was the response I recieved:

Brad,
If you would like to purchase a dozen or so of these Im sure we could work out some sort of deal. Just let me know what you would like to do. I also wanted to inform you that in the next few days we will be getting in 98-02 Accord Dual Gauge Bezels if you would would also like to do a group buy in on these also.

Thanks,
Joe Covert

The price is current'y $42.00 on eBay, and he did not specify a price cut in the email.

Here is a pic of the product:

From what I understood from talking to this guy, it was modeled after a sedan pillar, so I am sure it won't fit a coupe, even though he assured me it would fit a 01 and 02.

Uh-oh. I already ordered it and its on its way. We will see if this thing fits. It didnt say anything about being model specific on his ebay sale.

You guys do relize the bezel pods hide your stock guages right? Pretty dumb IMO. Im down for the a-pillar unless theres a 3 guage pillar out there already....

UPDATE!!!

Just so you all know. Yes, I bought it. Yes, I installed it. No, it does not fit very well. It looks like it should be close, but no. It is quite possible that it is off of a sedan, not sure. Its about an inch short on the top and doesnt fit the sides well. There is a pic in my gallery so you can see what I mean. I emailed that picture to Joe and he told me that I could return it as long as it was in good like new condition. Well, I had already painted and bent mine to get to fit as 'well' as it does. I asked him what like new condtion meant, and he has ignored my countless emails to him since. This does not get my approval and do not reccommend to anybody. I am tryin to have a nice clean car and this just makes me feel all cheesy with it not fitting right. FYI, I bought the dual gauge bezel (half pillar one, not the instrument cluster one) from them before the full pillar. Guess what? That sucks also even worse than the one we are talking about.

This may be a real stupid question, but here goes....i want a triple or even double guage pillar, but i don't know what guages to put in them? Can some one help me out, what guages would be good?? Where can i get them with good fitment and quality?? And lastly, how hard is it to install the different guage types? meaning not just putting in the pillar, but wiring it up so it works?? Any info for any of these questions would be great, thanks in advance!

We first need a decent pillar to put the gauges in :)
:werd:


Autometer has a pillar pod that I think might fit pretty good, but it isnt a full pillar piece. Too bad the Lotek thing fell through:( .
As far as which gauges, to be honest, if you are N/A you dont really need any of them. However, if you do want some, a voltmeter, tranny temp, water temp, could be ok. If you have N20, a nitrous pressure gauge....S/C, a boost gauge. With both of the FI inductions, a A/F and fuel pressure are good to have.

That is so far from the truth. Just because someone is boosted dosen't mean they need to moniter the engine any more then a N/A person. I have air/fuel ratio, oil pressure, tranny line pressure, tranny fluid temp, engine temp, volts, tach, fuel and speedo. I plan on adding exaust gas temp, oil temp, perhaps a power steering temp, and hell anything else I can find. I love gauges, I want to know whats going on at all times.
