Alright so call me crazy because, well, I probably am crazy, but I had an idea today while reading up on Sharka's (I'm sure we all, if not most of us, know of Sharka) build thread.
Now, looking at the gauges in the crash pad looks really good, am I right? What if we did something similar with an NA8 dash?
Now, as said in my sig, I own a '90 but swapped in a '95 dash because why not? Now as for my plans of F/I in the future, you're gonna need to monitor the car.
Personally, I don't like the idea of a pillar pod because they just look really ricey to me. So here comes my crazy idea... Since the '90 didn't come with passenger airbags, and well the passenger airbag is already removed from my dash, now there's just a big open hole where it should be. What if we made something similar to the crash-pad gauges, but used that cover for the airbag?
Of course it's not as easy as "Oh let's take a hole saw to the cover and throw some gauges in there," because that's not how angles and field of view work, but it's doable, no?
Anybody do this before? Or ever have the idea? I'd like to hear people's thoughts. If I'm feeling adventurous I may delve into the idea a little deeper myself, but I would enjoy some input beforehand.
PS: I just picked the category that sounded correct. If there's another place for this, please move it. I don't want to be another annoying noob.
