Unhappy Gauges !!!! Heeeelp

Hi all ! i am in real need of help! I just got some gauges from an AUDI RS2
and need to fit them! anyone got any ideas! The positions i thout is either on the windscreen pillar or the center vent or preferably on the central console in front of the gear selector! My problem is i cannot find any gauge pods for the console or the vent! Does anyone of you know anyplace i can get one or have any detailed instructions/dimensions on how to make one! i really want a proper finish and not a ''screw the world at least it works'' look! The gauges are : 1) Voltmeter
2) Oil Pressure
3)Oil temperature

Also where can i get the gauges face made in yellow as my clocks are yellow now!

PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!
By the way my car is an E30 318iS!!!

I think I remember seeing one of those tri-pod mounts for e30 in BMP cataloge. Go check at BMP racing. They should have it.
And its for center console mount I think.

come to think of it, for the console pod, I dont think its that hard to fabricate one. Why dont you take out a ruler and measure the dimensions. Then take a form board and make a mold. and from that mold use the fiberglass and fabricate one. with a proper sanding job and good paint job will be good.

just my 2 cents.

I'd have one for ya, but unfortantly I'm going to take a 90% bet that your car is RHD unlike the U.S. LHD, thus meaning your center section is reverse of ours.

Or I have a custom made ABS plastic dual pod for the pillar section made specificly for the e30's. You won't find them anywhere else. They are full replacment sections for that area and don't look tacky like others that are just smaller sections.

PM me and maybe we can work something out.

what are the chances that the pillar pod would fit an e34?
