Gauge Pod

We decided to mount the gauge in an Auto Meter A-pillar gauge pod. Auto Meter only builds its pods out of black ABS plastic, and we wanted it to match our gray interior. We shot the pillar cover with gray Colorbond that we got from LMC Truck. When we first used this stuff, we read the claims on the can that it actually soaks into the plastic and sort of laughed. Here we are a year later, with no scratches in anything we painted that revealed the color underneath. In fact, we scratched the A-pillar with the power screwdriver accidentally while we were mounting it, and we can see the scratch—it isn’t black.
