Best way to mount boost gauges?

What do you guys generally do for mounting boost gauges? I'm going to be adding 3 gauges to my car when my Blitz setup arrives. I've always been a fan of pillar mounting, but I don't think I have the skill to make a nice looking one myself.

Pods work great and can be placed anywhere you want.

^ Unfortunately, no. Your sedan has a more curvy dash that's different from the hatchback.

Ah ok. Thanks anyway. You don't happen to know the size of those blitz gauges that came with my s/c do you?

Where I had mine is still, I think, an ideal position. Easy to see, yet not blocking your view...

Thinking of using this - http://www.amazon.com/Auto-Meter-220...pr_product_top

Seem like a decent pod?


EDIT: Etimago that setup is great. I was thinking of putting mine in that same spot (except my car is LHD). What pods did you use?

Yes still for sale, but I think Mason already has some actual gauges? Those kinds of mounting pods out to do the job, just make sure the dimensions match!

I believe you're correct that he does, but $100+shipping for the set might be worth having it all set. I can't imagine the pods themselves being much cheaper...
