3d printed scangauge bracket

Its not anything super cool, but I still figured I'd share it because it is fun playing with this printer.

Ever since owning the Metro, my scangauge has been plopped on top of my steering column with the wire jammed between the trim panels holding it in place. This works, but not amazingly well.





The idea behind this little piece is simply to hold the scangauge perpendicular to my view. The little leg off to the bottom left needs work yet, but it'll basically get jammed in the other side of the trim and hold it in place.

Ah. So that "arm" on the side of the bracket just jams into the gap on the other side and keeps the SG secure in the same place on the dash?

I changed the design a little bit on the way home after seeing the SG sit off to the left a bit farther. A quick print (~15 minutes) and it was done. It works pretty good. The SG is a bit unlevel, but its better.
