Hey guys I searched that up already (Thanks for the link), just hoping someone had one they weren't using in grey already to save me a few steps and cash if you know what I mean

I take it you just use some SEM grey to paint it?

Also in my search some people were saying that this screws into the existing plastic A pillar or does it replace it and you just screw it in?

WTB: Grey A Pillar 3 gauge Pod

One is supposed to attach it,but I did away with the original all together after first removing the little "tail" that extends down between the dash/door. This gives one more room to work,run wires,etc,etc...

When I did mine, I used a blue A pillar from one of the taxi`s I parted out, sprayed it SEM grey and drilled six evenly spaced holes (three down each side, two at the top, two in the middle, & two at the bottom) through both pieces & used small button-head bolts with
nylock nuts to hold them together. (sprayed the heads of the bolts grey also...)

I don`t remember if I drilled a large hole thru the factory A pillar for the gauge wiring,
or just let them stick out of the bottom of the "sandwiched" pieces.

This way it allows you to use the factory clips to hold it all back in place...
