    That's a nice gauge pod. Fits well. I have to say that it would look a little better if you couldn't see that single screw at the top. Other than that, I like it.

    Has anyone got any ideas on how to attach the pod to the pillar without screwing it or damaging the pillar?


    I was thinking about using some number plate sticky pads so at least there would be a chance of of getting it off in the future without any damage.


    What do you guys think ??

    Doubt that would work, you'd wreck the material with the sticky pad and cant imagine the bond would be too good

    I want to fit the pod without screwing or damaging the pillar on the car.


    Has anyone got any ideas how to do it or is screw/glue the only option ?

    screw is the only option for me. i go on track days a few times a year and the last thing i want is the gauge pod falling off lol. but what im going to do is counter sink the screw and get a black cover like what you see on the side of furniture
