Creating the perfect gauge mount that would retain the factory OEM mounting points AND
hold a standard 2 1/16th gauge at a compound angle to allow quick viewing by the driver was the project.
Using the existing factory retention points and mounting clips to provide a part that closely matched the look and feel from the factory was a design concern..
Several prototype parts were printed in a 3D printer to allow installation in the vehicle for testing before the final part design was created and the plastic injection mold was built from the solid models.
The final revision of the Gauge Pocket Mount shown as a solid model.
Utilizing the existing space next to the radio, the gauge pocket mount has the exact same mounting tang arrangement as the factory part it replaces. With the gauge mounted on a compund angle (tilted up and toward the driver) the driver can steal a look at the gauge with a click glance, without having to turn his head.
