I purchased both the Autometer guage pod
and the Autometer guages from Summit Racing
The guage pod was black, but I had my friend
Wade (of Wade's Rod & Custom) color match
it with Dupont paint. If you search this
site, I'm sure you'll find the dupont paint
code for a GM Tan interior. If you can't
find it, let me know and I'll look it up
Here's what I did with my pyro meter. Installed it in the space where the cup holder used to be installed on the older models, but is now a useless storage slot. Cut the plastic plate using my wife's engraver and mounted it to the compartment with double stick tape (again from my wife's business).
I used Dakota Digital and color matched the A pillar pod. I had difficulty deciding whether to try and match faces and needles with the dash or digital to match trans select, temp control and audio system. Now that the decision is behind me I'm glad I went with the digital as they are read much more quickly by my aged and failing eyes.
Plus, as resident "el cheapo" I was able to pick the Dakota Digitals up for $100 from another member in our For Sale Classified thread.
