Thanks for the info clint, and yes, I would really like to see your pillar pod!!

Jon, I may take you up on that offer. Just checked with a few local shops, and they only carry this Evergreen styrene product (not familiar with it, so not sure if it would hold the gauges, or is it too rigid, etc.. and thoughts) Tower Hobbies (online) stocks sheets of the plastic, so I may just order some, knowing that I'll screw up a few times

Looks good.

Does the contour of your panel fit exactly follow the top pof the glovebox? I think that is the area alot of people considering this project will pull their hair out.

nice work, Angel

by chance did you ever write down the length and height of the metal plate?

And where did you get that carpeting?

Angel, that looks really good but I have one question for you.
How do you change the radio channels from behind the wheel while on the move?
