any links? What's the price range? $250 is retarded for what amounts to a hunk of plastic. Kevin was helping us out because he was diagnosing an issue I was having, but thanks anyway for the free bump.

As far as target price range for any vendors that see this thread, I'm thinking in the 25-35 range for ABS plastic/fiberglass, 55-75 for CF. Can anyone chime in with their thoughts on what they would be willing to pay for a reasonable quality kit? By reasonable, I mean, it doesn't hold your hand the entire way by including detailed instructions, all hardware, and absolutely flawless look and fitment...BUT, it should be structurally sound i.e. proper support for gauges (thicker plastic around the gauge face holes), should be able to resist cracking even in cold weather, and generally be mountable with a minimum of custom work and trimming.

Okay Black01, but say there was a group buy for the clock/hood type you see in the OP, would you be interested in that product? The only reason I ask is I feel like there's more interest for the clock type then the cluster bezel type.

Count me in as "interested" in something in the 52mm range.
I already have a modified OEM pod that just about fits my gauges, but I'd be open for something that was of similar quality, but a better fit.

If you made one for the cluster bezel I bet you would get a ton of people. Its such a nice spot
