I've got one sitting in the garage - says EF/L on it, don't know if they differ for box cars. They were something like $350.00 RRP - an absolute joke. PM me if your interested in making an offer. I'll try and get pictures tomorrow.

You know there illegal right? cops consider them to be in the "head clash" area.

I had a tacho there once (on the A pillar) got pulled over for a rbt. Of course being a modded car they went over it and gave me a warning for the tacho placement. They told me it had to be below the top of the dash area.

My reply was "mate if your head ends up that far over the steering wheel and the dash i think you'll have more problems than a tacho". Needless to say i ended up with a white peice of paper saying fix it :lol:.

So i moved it to the middle of the dash. don't think my head will end up there!
Now i got three up there :lol:

Ya can order them through autobarn cost me like $100 or something but i returned it and got my money back i stickytaped it there and drove round for a bit to see what it was like and it gets in ya way something shocking so i canned that idea in favour for gauges on the bonnet.

OH (drools) gauges on the bonnet!

yeah a tacho is illegal because it was above your dash line up the pillar is considered differently because some cars come stock with boost gauges mounted there.

There is a product you can buy off the shelf its a kinda crappy brand(DRIFT) but its like a standard pillar mould (if there is such a thing) and you cut and modify it to suit i think only around the $50 mark and has provisions for pods.

Here's the one I've got sitting here - it's still sealed in original packaging (which is dusty) so the pictures are crap:
