A proper vent gauge pod

Most vent gauge pods in Mustangs are the cheap replica kind.  Chicane Sport Tuning made the original for Tim Allen’s RRR Saleen. It cost a lot more, and is made of aluminum and bent to angle the dash.  The story goes…Autometer ask them to produce it for them, but for cost and speed.  It would have to be flat and made of plastic…Chicane refused.

I taped up my Autometer gauges, that I bought used on CL and sprayed the rings black.  I like to look of black rings, matching my interior and silver face stands out better.  I then mounted the 2 5/8″ gauges in an AC vent pod.
