Default Boost Gauge install like a BOSS

I wanted to keep it gangster and keeping the interior as close to stock looking as possible.So this install called for no gauge pods and something that if you peeked in the window you would see nothing out of the norm.And heres the pics



Incognito at its finest






Unleash the Beast










All lit up (Will need to get a night time pic)

Actually its a piece of ABS plastic I cut and molded to the perfect arch/angle so the door can still open and close.


This is what it looked like when I received it

Just use do some fiberglassing, smooth it out and insert gauge... AND you save the lighter. Did this for a member already.

Looks nice though

Wasnt for gauge, but still the same concept. For some reason I cant find a pic of the completed unit, but you can still get the idea without the installed ***** and buttons:
