overhead console gauge mount

anyone ever seen an overhead console gauge mount. one that would utilize the small storage area/cubby hole. im thinking of adding 2 more gauges and thought that would be a good place. thanks.

Re: gauge pod

Never seen one... not for a Ford anyway...

Why not just go with an overhead pod to begin with?

Re: gauge pod

nope but you could probably make something out of fiberglass, just make a mold of what you want, and fiber glass over it... then all you have to do is mount it to the overhead console inside one of the pockets or whatever... thats how im going to install my upfitter switches, im going to make a overhead console out of fiberglass so i can mount them over the rearview mirror... or you can do what csipsd suggested and just get a overhead gauge pod it will mount up there even if you have the overhead center console

orrrrr check this out... Instrument Pod it fits into your instrument console, and has two gauge pods....

Re: gauge pod

Be careful, the drivers side is a bugger, I ended up grinding out part of the factory gauge bezel to get that one in there snug. It works but be preparied to do a little customizing. Passanger side is wide open.
