Pillar Gauge pods

Is there anyone who makes custom pillar gauge pods. I have a 57 Chevy and am trying to figure out what to do with my extra gauges. I have thought about drilling into my dash, but hate to do that, but is an option. WHat I woul really like to do is have 2 pods on the A pillar of the car. I have an extra pillar for the car and would like to get someone to build a custom pod for me. Can anyone help with this?

Thanks Travis.

Summit has some that may work or you could modify to fit.

I have looked at all of those, and even ordered one set. The problem with all of them is that they all are for a slanted A pillar.

I have them down there right now and do not like them there. I want them more in my line of sight. I also do not like the look of the wires and such running down there. I am trying to clean up the look of the inside of my car a lot.

What might fit the look of your 57 better is to find a couple of old dash or column mount tachs and place your guages in them and then mount the chrome units to your pillar.
