A-pillar 2-gauge vs 3-gauge pod

May I ask you guys to post a picture of your a-pillar gauges? I am looking to run a dual pod with a shift light beneath the pod. Is there room for the shift light? Normal autolite shift light or equivalent. I've never really seen any pod installed on the a-pillar, and was hoping to see pics of what it looked like. Thanks.

2nd question, how do you wire up a tachometer/shift light? I didn't buy one yet, so I didn't see the instructions.

Thanks. Looks like plenty of room to put a shift light below that dual gauge pod.

Well if you take off the A pillar (there's just two screws at the top where the T Top meets it, and the bottom part will just pop out), you can see there's a little plastic tunnel leading to that little vent. I guess they just cut or block of that air tunnel thing idk, it's pretty easy to see what I'm talking about once u take the pillar off.
