Excellent. Provided exactly the capability I needed to house the typical gauges, mine are Autometer Ford Factory Match, and my Hydra controller. Needs some finesse to install but that just means it fits properly. Excellent finish, didn’t even paint mine.

I try to be objective and critical so others will have the answers I wish I would have had when I was deciding what to purchase.This pod does what it's supposed to do. I was under the impression that I was purchasing a replacement A-pillar, but that's not what this is. This sits on top of your existing pillar. You have to drill and cut a series of holes in your pillar then plastic rivet this thing on.I have Auto Meter gauges (love them!) and they don't even fit properly. The holes are not precise- some are too small, others too big. The gauges are not aimed at the driver as well as they could be and, with being forced to mount this thing on top of your A-pillar, wiring is a bee-otch. When it's completely installed, it looks pretty good. I did not paint mine and it does not look out of place. Tan leather interior.It's so difficult to uninstall and re-install that, if your gauges are installed less than perfectly straight, you're probably going to leave them in. I'm PICKY! and it wasn't worth the hassle to take them out again to adjust the tilt. The plastic rivets are not designed to be removed and replaced. If you have to take them out, you're probably going to have to source new ones because being removed destroys them.Very thin PVC plastic, about the same thickness as a credit card and possibly a bit thinner. Not a quality product but I'm finding that most aftermarket accessory parts aren't.
