Pillar Gauges

Okay guys I have a question...
I am planning on installing a three gauge set. If I use the pillar mount does it interfere with vision?
There is already a fairly wide blind spot there because of the A pillar and the smoked wind deflectors.
I know the overhead mount would solve that but if it's not a problem I'll go with the pillar mount.

it adds to the blindspot. but its easy to get used to once you drive around and get used to them being there. but im also saying that as i have a quad a-pillar pod so the triples might be better.

Pod

Will,
Thanks for the speedy reply!
I think I'll check a couple different manufacturers and see what I find.
I will probably go with the pillar mount but I am looking at the overhead mount too.
Anyway thanks again.

It does make the blind spot a tad bit worse, nothing horrible. It doesnt take long to get used to.
