    As title, does anyone know where I can get the grey material for covering boost pod gauges...? Im thinking about installing a gauge in my 2002 S3.

    Cheers

    Go to a carpet shop or craft shop like hobbycraft stores. Converted a van to crew cab once and that's the material we sourced for roof lining ect was flexible and looks ok. Put up pics once you done it.

    Chassis number. Stealership. Buy internal panel material for other section.

    Personally, having covered and then removed the covering, I now much prefer the uncovered smooth finish with Matt black spayed finish to match the gauge surround and the dash.

    Check my progress photos.

    Urgh, im in a dilemma, I think I might just do what you did and matt black it. Did you have to cut into the actual pillar to fit the gauge?
