: A-pillar Gauge Pod
09-08-2003, 08:57 PM
I am in the process of pulling off a clean look as far as the interior of my foci is concerned. I figure someone has to know whether anyone makes a full dual guage pod a-pillar? I have a gauge pod on my mustang but it is the type you screw on to the a-pillar and i don't like it as much as i would like just having the whole a-pillar with the pod on in my focus. thanx guys and gals!!!

I haven't seen a full a-pillar guage pod piece...only the ones like your Mustang. If you find one, let us know.

Only thing I can see doing if you want that kindof look right now is to mold and fill something like a Ford Racing dual guage pod.............

yah i was thinking about doing that but i thought for sure especially with where the focus aftermarket is at today some genious would have thought about making a full gauge pod. Just seems wierd to have so many companies yet none of them came out with something this simple!

no one is making it...they were going to be developed but there wasn't enough interest iin it.

some just screw on and others are "full pods"? Id like to know more about this, im going to get some gauges soon too

enough interest? Man they need to look again. Tons of foci owners are looking for this. I mean how can they offer this for the PT Snoozer and not the focus. Ok I am done venting. Will sit in the corner and pout now!

poontang cruisers, ppppfffftttttt, yeh gonna have to mold it, use fibreglass or graphite fabric, which would be exspensive as hell but sweet, i think i may do that

The only poontang that PT drivers get is from their own grandma cuz they are the only ones that would even sit in that god awful thing.

the poontang crusier is for poontang drivers

there is a company making them for the focus. when they will be released remains a mystery.

dont remember...i saw it in a car magazine a while back. i'll go through them and look. i've only got subscriptions to scc, hci, and turbo so if you want to look, dont bother looking in anything but those.

well i looked but didn't find the mag i saw the ad in. however, at import expo this weekend in houston, i talked to a guy who's company makes full gauge pillars for trucks. i showed him my gauge pillar and how much interest there is for a full a-pillar for those who have 02 model year foci and up and for those who want a clean look. i gave him my contact info and a few focus websites and he's going to get back to me as soon as possible.

Great job Dropdfocus!! Thank you for helping us get this word out!! I hope this works out. Nothing like a clean look in a show car. Can you tell I am happy that we are at least getting somewhere with this. Thanks again

I know Tony@Newedge HAD some FMS full pillars in both 2 and 3 gauges.......they weren't on the site but you might want to drop him a line........
There are some in here..... works best if you just "right click" and do a save as before looking through the catalog.... they are on page 17
