Just wondering if anyone knows of a company who makes pillar guage pods to suite an EL falcon? Thought I might see if there was a company out there before using the generic pods

They go under the name DEFECTV i think.
I got mine off a guy who got it from them. They also distribute through some autobarn dealers. But exxy for what they are.
There's a pic or two of them in my gallery if you want a squizz.
Retail for around the $170 mark.... :shock:

maybe try getting the cheap universal ones and get a spare pillar from the wrekers and fiberglass the pods to the pillar so they look more intergrated, then spray pillar grey like your dash

For something like that it wouldnt be hard and you would only need a small fiberglass repair kit from supercheap, the instructions are in the kit

Even if you see the Defectv one, that i have got, they defiantely arent worth $170.
I only got mine cheap, so i got it, otherwise, even the Bezels or Cups that you can get for the Autometer gauges might be cheaper and look pretty shmick too.

yeah i've got one sitting at work, but as someone said it's $170.00, I didn't even check the price before ordering it last year lol! i wouldn't pay more than 40, it hasn't even had the holes cut out for the guage.

Yeah they dont have the holes cut out so you can either put the 2"1/16 or the 2"5/8 gauges in.
Agreed, though, still too expensive for what they are.
Check ebay before you give up all hope.

I know there is a sight on eby that sells them for $44 dollars. its actually FLYNN INTERNATIONAL. I dont think they bolt up directly but with a bit of trimming they should fit no worries.

It wont let you.

Go to www.americanautos.com.au

Then search. Then paste this in "PMFALAUON"

Then search for that. It should come up then. Best bet would be to Phone American Autos and ask them.
