I'd only be interested if it was a replica of the Defi one in 60mm and it fit a lot better than the ebay replica's since I have an ebay replica

I'm guessing so. Its definitely the one I can make the quickest.

Its definitely more subtle. With the coating on it, it looks stock.

Glad you like it. At first glance, i was 'meh' about it, but then i put the gauges in and liked it much better.

I don't understand. You want one you can't find? do you want this in 45mm? I have to get a list together still, but I should have them in about a month if i order them right away in time for him to get them on the next container.

If i make a cluster bezel, what size gauges would be required? 52mm? 45mm? I would need to know before fabbing it up. I think its something i can vacuum form for pretty cheap.

Are you going to have your dash pod flocked too?

My plan was to find a gauge pod first, then have everything flocked at once

I don't do flocking. You'll want to contact rallyfast for that. I can leave it raw and the price will be $75 shipped. Otherwise, it'll be $90 shipped for the scoop with the stock looking coating. I like it with the other coating because it looks closer to the vents directly below it.

Anyone have any answers for me for the gauge size for the cluster bezel?

My gut says to go with 52mm on the bezel, only because of the better choice of 52mm gauges over 45mm gauges. But, I have no idea if the 52mm would look too big or not.

I'd say 52mm on the cluster bezel. So when are these bad larry's going to be ready for purchase?

I know you don't do flocking. My question was about YOUR personal car.

I know there's a nice selection of 52mm but i think there's a reason the other pods use 45mm. Your gauge cluster was designed for visibility to look at the oem gauges and there's not too much room there to be used up for additional gauges.

In 3-4 weeks on the gauge pod. I'll look at 52mm on the bezel, take pics, and show you guys what it looks like. How do the gauges normally stay in place on these gauge pods? I'm guessing you use one of those U-shaped brackets on each gauge?

I hope I didn't come across as rude. I thought you meant offering these flocked. I was honestly thinking about flocking it originally for my car. This gauge cluster came to me raw fiberglass and i wanted to coat it to show better in pictures. WHen i test fitted it to my car, I liked this look better because it seemed to match. Flocking wouldn't look too bad either.
