that's a lot of mount. why not add another two square inches of material and remake the whole hood?

Man i love that guy's gauge faces, I've seen them before, can't remember where though. Think they're styled after a old Indy car maybe.

Dont have one just know that my friend made one of those for his Evo cus he was too cheap to buy one of those pod thingys. Pretty sure he took the stock Pod thingys that come with the gauges and a second cover and just plastic welded em on there *shrug* didnt look as nice but hell it worked.
