sPod and Overhead Console

Is anyone out there running an sPod with some sort of overhead console? Doesn't matter if it's manufactured by a company or fabricated from scratch. I have something in mind, but want to see what others have done.

I'm building one of these over the holidays. I'll probably use an A-Pillar switch mount or fab up something myself.

I'm ok with electrical, but I don't trust myself with that level of electrical work. Good luck, look forward to what you come up with. I'm planning on incorporating a fabricated overhead console with an "sPod" like setup.

That's pretty cool, I'm working on something where I can run every thing the sPod delivers (minus the windshield switch housing) and an overhead console and molle pad all together.

I've installed half a dozen S-Pods in our shop just in the last two weeks and I must say that idea is a cool alternative. Good to see you innovating!

Finally finished fabricating the overhead console, it has a gauge hole and four switch holes. Plus room for a CB radio and M.O.L.L.E. padding. Will post pics soon.
