    Just a heads up for you guys - the PLX Gauge Shroud and the Flexpod mount are not compatible with the PLX DM-100 gauges.

    When you try to install this, the lower section will hit the mount point for the gauge cup. I cut this section out.

    This will still not fit - the DM-100 is barely long enough without the visor to reach the set screws in the Flexpod that hold it in place. When you add the visor, it pushes the DM-100 out a bit more and the set screws will not hold it in the gauge cup.

    This is a photo of the hole in the Flexpod for the set screw. You can see the edge of the DM-100 on the right side of the hole. This is with the gauge visor in place. The set screw will not grab onto this.

    This is a shot of where the set screws bite into the DM-100 when it is set into the cup without the visor. Its on the very edge to begin with.

    I bought it off Amazon but hacked it up already so no returning it. ::shrug:: Life goes on, but hopefully this will save someone else $15. If anyone has any suggestions to get this to work I'm all ears!
