That is one of the better ideas I've seen. I figured it would be too hard to get them in there. Your friend care to share some tips on how it was done?

As to the other questions/comments:

On my 2006, the airbag sits farther above the plastic piece just above the glove box, plenty of room for lots of gauges.

The pods are OK, I just like to keep my field of view as unobstructed as much as possible. Already have a GPS unit cluttering things up, and that is a necessary heads-up device.

Angle bezels are available for the gauges, which tilt them toward the driver. Easy to see. Probably easier to see than the factory gauges, which my hands and the steering wheel cover up. Gives my kid something to stare at too ("here Cal, let me know if those needles move"). As a aircraft pilot, I'm used to looking all over for gauge information.

I do hate drilling holes in the plastic, but I figure the gauges are going to stay put for a long time, if not forever. (Its not like these cars will ever be 64.5 restoration projects.)
