Someone said to keep making parts, so here goes. :-)

First, I've had a broken Grille Clip for ages, and finally designed a copy. Have not made yet but is a pretty close copy.

Next is an idea I've been playing with for a while. I always thought that the area on top of the steering column would be a good spot for extra gauges, but to simply put on top of the existing cover obstructs the OEM gauges too much. There is actually plenty of dead space under the cover, so I decided to make a gauge pod that replaces the original cover. There are 3 files. One for the OEM steering wheel, one that offers deeper gauge pods but requires an aftermarket Hub (like MOMO), and then the bare replica steering column cover if you want to play with it on your own. I have not made this either but think all the measurements are fairly close.

Nice move on the gauge pod, reminds me of the Podi dual pods. Will be interesting to see the final product installed.

Funny, I had never heard of those before. Heh.

I'll definitely post pics once made. I'm sure some adjustments will be needed from the original design.
