I know lotec makes them for our cars, but all I can find are the triple pods. And I don't need triple only a double or even a single will work intill I get my othe gauge
Will the camry pillar pods work?or are the a-pillars different shapes?

They offer twin and single pods there as well.

Personally, I find "A" pillar pods to be a nuisance because they interfere with your field of vision, but that's just me. ;)

Wow that was fast ... So how did you mount the greddy gauges? I just figured a pillar pod might look better than the band type holders idk. And the double and single are not listed on gaugeoods.com which is why I asked

I had them in a triple pillar pod. I hated it.

Check the thread Rizin made about custom gauge pods. It's stickied somewhere, I think maybe in the interior or custom fab section.

It's what I have now and I love it.

You will. They ride to either side of the wheel and as such are visible from most driving positions.

I agree with Mario, I have the 3 gauge pod on the pillar and it does interfere with your vision enough to be a nuisance. This is especially true when driving somehwere like the dragon where you really need that field of view that is blocked by the pod. I had planned to put irpls in both of my cars but at this point I will not put it in the 2nd one. It's a lot of work to do that kind of thing so I don't think I will be undoing the 1st one anytime soon. So much more other stuff to do rather than un/re doing something that works correctly.
