Lotek Gauge Pod
Thursday, September 06, 2012 5:42 PM
So this is the Lotek A-pillar gauge pod, http://www.gaugepods.com/chevy.html:


What I'm wondering is if this is a complete replacement like they say. When I say complete, I mean clips and all. Looked around a little and only saw people complaining about the glowshifts. Anyone know?

Ryan I just emailed them to find out. I have heard that there are some out there of each style.

I just got my glowshift in the mail a few days ago. I can't bring myself to insult my car by installing it. I knew it was cheap but wow. Even if you somehow bond it to the factory piece, which I REALLY don't want to do, how the hell do you run the wires and hoses for 3 gauges!? Horrible.

Its a cover but a nice fitting cover.

I got one hiding in storage somewhere.

I made it. It's a damn good cover

It attaches with screws that do have covers to blend them in. Looks really nice when installed, almost factory like.

I got the glowshift. It can be done nicely but takes some work.

yep i have one in my car right now.. just a cover unfortunately.

now.. if you want a full clip in style you need to talk to ortiz custom pods. they made me a completely custom one with 3 pods like the lotec out of a stock pillar. looks just like a lotec only it works just like OEM..because well.. thats exactly what it is LOL



I choose the technology built for land speed records... not the technology built to save on emissions and gas mileage.

Ive molded random pods for a few people in the past.


Not to hard if you have a little time.

I had the Lotek pod for no more than a day before returning it. There was nothing wrong with it at all I just thought that I stuck out to far for my liking. It also fit really well for a cover. Instead I went with the three in the two vents above the radio and one in the cig lighter spot. It was more work but IMO it was worth it for the cleaner look.

The Glowshift sticks out way far too. I always wanted to have 3 gauges up there but after semi-installing it I may opt for a single pod as far down as possible. Sucks that no one makes a COMPLETE replacement piece either..

The picture I posted in the OP is the picture from their site. When I say complete I mean with clips in the factory locations so it mounts like stock rather than on the stock piece.
