Gauges and A-Piller

Looking for a gauge and A-piller set. Anybody got any suggestions? I'm thinking a 2 gauge set Pyro and Boost. My 02 F-350 has a tranny guage in the dash. RPMOUTLET has a Stewart Warner 2 guage set with A-pillar for $189.95. I guess you have to paint them yourself. Anybody got a good line on OEM matching paint that will stick on plastic? Do you need to sand the A-piller? Any input would help. Thanks guys

i would suggest getting an tranny temp as well because the stocker is crap... my stocker will always be in the middle where my auto meter tranny temp gauge can be at anywhere from 150-210 and the stocker will never move..... so def get the tranny gauge... and you dont have to sand the a pillar to paint....

i have 4 auto meter gauges, three on tha a-pillar. Tranny temp on top, then EGT, the turbo boost on the bottom. the fourth is the oil pressure located just about the "wait to start" light.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

i got an autometer set from patrick at discount power parts, the C2 gauges to be exact. the pyro, boost, and trans temp, plus the "A" pillar and all hardware for install at a very reasonable price. talk to him, he'll hook you up. as for the paint, you can go to any paint store, i went to a place local here and they matched the paint with the color of one of the caps off of my oh S**t handle. matched perfectly and it was in an aerosol can. it will stick to plastic and no other prep was necessary. just cleaned the pod and let it dry then painted away. here is a photo or two for you to see. my pod came black and you cant tell after it was painted.

Before my outlook monitor I used a bd power monitor I really liked it alot, Tranny and or oil, boost, egt. No you dont have to sand them just wipe with alch before painting/priming. Color Rite is what I used to paint mine. Matched perfectly.

Is a 30 lb boost gauge enough? Don't really see the need to boost more than that
