This is an evolution of my original dashpod based on some of the experiences I've had installing the the original. The most obvious difference is that it's a bit more rounded than the first version for aesthetic reasons but there are quite a few other important changes of note.
The mounting holes for the face have been enlarged to allow the use of M5 screws with M5 brass screw-to-expand threaded inserts pushed into the pod's body. ( https://www.mcmaster.com/94510a045 )
The rear opening for the cable run has been expanded and modified to accept a Tyco Electronics circular panel connector. The hole has been specced for a Series 1, Shell Size 17, 16 position receptacle kit.( https://www.mscdirect.com/product/details/07509912 )
- I had to do a fair bit of grinding on the first version of the pod for some clearance issues with bolts holding the steering rack in, this version takes better account of that.
