Installed new gt500 wheel,Boss gauge pod, and aluminum dash! Looks and feels great! Makes a base interior soooooo much nicer. Now I want the leather seats and that would give me the ''premium'' feel for a fraction of the price.

That looks awesome and that exactly what i want to do with mine when it comes in. Did you do the install yourself or pay someone else?
If you got someone else I was wondering how much it cost to have installed

Looks very nice. There are lots of places you can get the leather done and I suspect the price can be haggled a bit. I "paid threw the nose" for the premium, but that's cause I'm old and lazy...:winks

Well done!

Thanks everyone! I put the dash and wheel on myself and my brother in law helped me put the pod and gauges in.They are prosport water temp,volt,and oil pressure gauges.They are too long for the pod but I don't care.So it only cost me a lunch!I got the aluminum dash off Craigslist for 150 bucks.

"Holly Japan"! A dumbing down in tastes.

They used to put the JC Whitney universal 3 gauge panel........"under the dash" for a reason. Now they call it a pod and put it top and center and say, "dig me"!:nogrinner

I think under the dash would be awesome but my legs barely even fit under the dash much less anything else!

Not at all the same thing, pod not the same as a panel where the gauges hang out in the open.

.....That would be the "reason" in the post. I get the concept, the wiring is hidden by the pod inclosure. Under the dash panels nobody cared about exposure. Just wanted to rial up the stuff on top of dash crowd!:)

Theres always the roush air vent gauge, which is a clean look a fit for those who were interested in gauges.
