    I have been wanting a Triple Gauge Panel like Deathshadow made a few years ago.

    I decided, what the hell, I will give it a try. Worst that may happen, is I might throw away a few days with of work.

    Here are a few pics. I am not finished yet. This is a work in progress.

    Still need a bit more sanding and I need to cut the openings out for the gauges.

    If it turns out nice are you going to make more? Look good. I've been thinking about trying to do this with a double din....and with 2 gauges...well maybe 3

    what products are you using for this

    werty i have a Double din i have had for about 2 years and never used if you want it just send me your address in a pm and i will send it to you.

    also it has a small surface crack on the top right corner of the DD opening but it doesnt go all the way through.

    and if you dont want it somebody else hit me up need to get rid of it

    I use carved quarter inch Plexiglas archs behind each pod as bracing (for no flex), I had problems with flex initially causing cracks.

    You will also need to test fit the gauges BEFORE paint as you will probably need to remove some inside pocket material

    I use that plastic part with the tits that you have glued on behind the rings, its needed to mount it in the truck.

    last thing is on the later ones I widened the gap between the pods, it is VERY hard to get a real clean finish in between those two small gaps around the center pod.

    I did this by leveling the outside bevel of the pocket and moving them farther apart.



    looks good coupe

    I am going to take Deathshadow's advice and start over. I am going to implement his ideas into a new panel.
