Also my plan is to maybe add one more pod to the other side so its 4 up top AEM Analog Gauges to, Wideband, Oil Pressure, Voltage, EGT. All black faces, so it will look even better at night. Plus with my tints being dark no one will see my gauges up top until i flip them on by a rocket launch switch, which is just a badass thing haha

what type of tracking would you do with your car? like drag, autox, road course/open track days?

Road Course/track, might get into autox. Will have to see.

UPDATE:
I just purchased my sheet of carbon fiber, and going to start making my part. But first to make my prototype for my mold.

Yeah, I can't wait just started getting all my supplies and just got to make a template to mold, just thinking of what to do. I also want to make a few extras. for anyone, (Ebay) since I'm not a vendor I can not advertise the links so just keep a look out for them in a month or so.

Like the idea. Only part that concerns me is how viewable will they be once you get a race seat and helmet on your head? seems they would require head movement or a rediculous arm length to be able to see them. Just thouhts...

^this...
Im a short guy 5'6. Just went out and sat in the car because I like the Idea. wouldnt work for me. way to close alot of head movement for me would be needed. let alone with a helmet on.

But still would like to see it made.

Check out the new SkyPod Lieske and I made, this should help with short people since its by the mirror and tucked in better.

"Lieske" Skypod Idea (CAD DRAWING) LOOKS SICK!

This is the other skypod, also I just thought of another idea, a lower pod on your dash and window. How does anyone feel about that as well?

Not to bash your ideas/product, but this seems completely pointless to me. If you're going to build a race car, one would assume that you would gut your car to achieve the lightest weight possible to help attain the most performance possible. If you're gutting your car, then you have plenty of room to place as many gauges as necessary where your climate controls/radio used to be. Which would be much easier to see for any driver, not to mention keeping maximum viewing area through your windshield. Just my two cents...

She's wide.

Started to build it, and how I molded it was a challenge, it was hard to see with my helmet on like everyone said, so I am making a whole new dash cover with gauges hopefully this will be better once finished!
