i have a 2000 9-3, and was wondering if anyone knew of a pod that would mach closest to the A-pillar. i know the 9-3 is more angled than my 1996 900se so i cant use that one.

Thats correct. I used an S10 pod, heated it up to mold it and had the whole thing reupholstered. You can see pics on my webpage (click the WWW below my post).

Currently there aren't any pods made to fit our cars :evil:

I went to a local speed shop and asked the guy to let me take a few out to the parking lot. I just fit a few on just to see which was the closest. I ended up using a mid 90's mustang dual guage pod and used a heat gun to mold it. Be careful with the heat gun, it can melt the plastic and make it bubble if u keep it too close.

Hey, i used a dual pod from a ford excursion.
This has got to be the closest fit i found.
The only spot i shaped was the bottom the make a V shape to fit the pillar.
I just put it over a stove and heated it up a little, enough to shape and bent it (i took the pillar to the kitchen).
How this helps

lucky i had a heat gun cause i was really dumb......i didnt want to take the a pillar out cause i thought it was kinda attached at the top. I finally got the whole pillar out cause someone told me i could do that (after i was finished), but i did all the work out in the cold sitting in my car

why thank you.....i really thoguht it was sewed on, cause i started to take it off and peeked in there and i saw black threads in there. They turned out to be just loose ends to the material i tihnk but i was convinced they were somehow sewn on there.
