Gauge and Pod install

Well the wife got me a great B-day present. She got me an A pillar gauge pod and associated gauges. Thanks Raul. Here is the dilemma. I don't have a garage and it is the wet season in our area. The shop that I was going to use to let me install them can't. I can understand the insurance aspects etc. All of my friends garages are to small to fit my truck. So these are my options: 1) Just pay the buddy that was going to let me use his shop to do it for me. OR 2) Rent out shop space on base for way too much money but get the satisfaction of doing it myself. There is a third option but that involves waiting until July when it quits raining. What would you guys do?

how about instead of paying for a shop to do it you buy a big cover or rig something up with a tarp

Yeah I may try to rig something up with a tarp. The price of a cover would be less than he would charge me.

Yeah it is pretty bad. I wanted to install them that day.

yah i bought one of those huge car covers that will easily fit my truck for 200 bucks from an auto parts store..... something like that will cover up the whole truck and it even came with the side vinyl pieces so that if its windy it wont hit you..... if it were me i would use the money its gonna take to pay someone to do it and buy one of those car ports for around the same price and have the satisfaction of me doing it my self
