Well i'v been thinkin for the past couple of months on some unique mods that havn't been done 1 million times over. I started to think about the gauges. Its pretty much a piece of plastic thats been printed over and laid down.

So i did some chops and was thinkin maybe if i took mine out and got a hi-res scan of it and then modded it. Then print it out on a photo printer using transparent paper and cut it up and stuck it in there. Wonder how it'd look?


Enough talk, the chops:





These are just quick drafts but what yall think?

I think it might be an interesting mod but its gonna be some work to get out the tach out.
Plus when you get a Reflash your gonna have to move that thing. :D

not feeling the yellow, but I like the red a lot.

would this be a whole new gauge or just an overlay?

and I think the red area in your chop would look even better if it faded in like how it does on the bottom.

I love VTEC more than anyone in the world but I think there is too much emphasis on it...c'mon guys vtec guages? I love the effort but not a fan. VTEC is awesome but people are acting like its a whole new dimension or something lol

I think its pretty sweet. I also think you could do it mostly transparent and keep the gradiant from the middle. :) Do this and sell it! :)

i kinda like the yellow but not everything else, especially showcasing vtec some more. but the yellow is kinda cool in the "kick" zone.

My friends Pontiac Grand Prix GTP has a little yellow aea on the tach where he gets peak boost. It also has a worthless LED Boost meter(i wouldnt call it a guage) that doenst have any numbers on it. It is cool though.
