So I am on the market for a single overhead gauge pod (going to add a boost/AFR gauge) but all the ones I see have it smack dab in the middle and I would like some room to add switches for other mods (water/meth...maybe train horn >:) ). I figured since I have a 3D printer I would make one. The design is done (nothing too fancy) and is currently printing on my Prusa. If it turns out well I will share the STL file on Thingiverse.

UPDATE - added a 2 gauge version as well.

Thanks. I am aware of that product (speedlogix is awesome BTW) but as I mentioned in my post, I am looking for one that does not have the gauge in the middle. I finished printing my version and hope to install soon and post the file so other DIY'ers can have fun tinkering as well.

WOW! So someone from thingiverse just informed me that there is a ebay seller...literally a few towns over...selling an almost identical version of my gauge pod that I posted on thingiverse.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/GAUGE-POD-52mm-2005-2018-CHALLENGER-CHARGER-300-MAGNUM-GRAND-CHEROKEE/132901636845

What do you think?! Only difference I see is the person added a logo and the image shown installed looks like the pod sold by Speedlogix.

So I just contacted the seller and notified them that they are violating Thingiverse's license policy. To be honest, I really don't care but for the love of God at least change the fillets and add some more...pizzazz...to the design. Don't just slap a logo on it an call it yours...be creative and then post your design on thingiverse. :wink3:

No, I had the sunglass holder off but at the last minute I decided to go A-pillar. I am glad I did because oddly enough I use that sunglass holder. That and I did not want to run cabling up there. The A-pillar is way easier to get and an make quick wiring changes to.

Aww they took your idea? I was confused cuz the ebay link doesn't have the one you posted on here.

It has two different pictures that look nothing alike.

And only time I wear shades is at work cuz there safety glasses lol

That's because the seller literally pulled the images 20 minutes ago. That's why I posted a screenshot of the original add.

how about a phone holder? Would that even be possible?
I was thinking of designing a phone holder that goes into your cup holder...just need to find the time model it up.

Hopefully I got thru to the seller. They said they will get the proper pics up. I hope they really spruced up the design. I expect copycats from across the pond (aka Pacific) but to have one who lives in the same state and just a few towns over is disheartening. If it's someone from CT I have no ill will towards you, all I ask is for you to be original and take the design to kick arse!
