    Looks real good, pal! Especially with those ever-so rare twisty side skirts. I was wondering, did you make that center piece for the boost gauge holder or does someone make it?

      Thanks man, the gauge pod is from a company called Ortiz Custom Pods. They take some time to make them but worth it.
