    Just need to get it back and fit my electrical Stacks Boost and oil pressure gauges

    I went for the electrical Stacks boost gauge as it reads 35 psi and Oil pressure in Bar for easy reading

    I would like to thank Dave Platt aka Twins on some Ford Forums for his handy work

    Looks good mate.

    Hows it sit on the coloumn? Does it get in the way of the dials?

    Its the subframe bushes that are the weak point and will be better than the braces

    I'm making some solid subframe bushes

    I have done this a while ago and posted it on some thread. I used a Mk 4 golf pod and modded it a bit to fit the S3 column.

    Sorry but not for me,
    It makes the cluster look very busy, I have a pillar pod and a vent pod but if i needed a third i would probably go for a twin pillar set up.
    Each to there own and it looks well made too

    I only like the OEM look so it has to be hidden or subtle.

    Not the best pic but you get the idea

    I like it and just have to wire it all up, they don't block the view of the dials that much anyway

    Covers the time and the mileage but who looks at them all the time

    Personally I reckon they are too close to you, I'd be more drawn to those than my speedo I think.

    just got rid of a focus st 225 and loved having gauges on the dash far better than pillar or other set ups IMO .
