    Finally got the boost gauge figured out

    Let me know what you think. It took several hours to get it done very carefully, and to make sure it looks really good and not shoddy.

    Looks like it should be centered of have another gauge on the other side. Looks imbalanced. Seems like a clean install though...Nice job.

    How easy it to remove/can you still access the fuse panel?

    I plan on putting air/fuel next to it, and it pulls out just as easy. It’s attached to the fuse panel with wires going through the hand hole

    Yeah clean install! You think it'll be functional down there though? I feel like I'd like it in my field of vision while driving.

    I’m pretty tall, I sit far back where it’s just a glance, and just to see where it’s at when I am curious.

    I'd want it up in the A-pillar, but...nobody makes a pillar with pods for the 2nd gen, so...that's a pretty good spot to put it that looks clean.

    They don’t make it for the pillar due to the airbags in them. They don’t want the liability of a gauge is propelled by airbag into your face

    Nah, just because there's only 4 models years of car, and no high performance version. There's no market. Plenty of cars with roof bags have had pillars. Including Gen1 Cruze and Cobalts.

    This is my Gen I. You can just see the airbag behind the pillar cover in the second pic.

    Well, I mean, technically the 1st gen only had like 5.5 model years, and the gauge pillar was out within the first few years.

    For whatever reason, the aftermarket for the 2nd gen just simply didn't seem to exist to the extent of the 1st gen at all. It's quite odd, honestly.

    But yeah, absolutely nothing to do with the pillar bag.
