You live in Cali, what would you need heat for?
Looks good, but I might spray it trim black to cover the remaining white decals, or maybe they will come off with a little thinner...

i am actually going to address that issue
and no, they wont come off, the plastic is clear there so the light will shine through
probably end up spraying it

Re: DIY Gauge Pod (Boost Inside)

...well, if you think that you don't need those switches-- I say go for it! It'll look great, I'm sure (I like OEM-style stuff...), just have that thing painted matte black (to cover the heater controls lettering...)
Post some pics once you install them!
