Default Becoming "rice" or not??

I want to put some gauges in my car. And the easiest place right now is the A pillar. I am kind of thinking this is becoming to "ricer" these days and since its a Lumina I think people would lol hard when they see it.

What do you guys think?

If they are functional, who cares? I have gauges on my A pillar. As long as they are functional, I'd say it isn't rice.

All you'd need is bubbly purple tint to complete the vato race car look

It's not rice at all to be able to see the data you need to keep the car running right.

Put a VAC gauge on the car to see all your VAC from the brake booster.

I voted no but... it can be Rice depending on how its done. I've seen some stupid crap in pillar pods. Saw a guy with a Saturn that mounted 4 gauges in 2 hacked up pods. one was a fricken clock. Yes AutoMeter makes clocks that will fit in your gauge pod.

How is it rice? Most the time actual ricers dont even have their shit running on the a pillar. I met a guy that had 2 widebands on an a pillar...not even working, so yea rice. But if theyre fully functional and help you know what your car is doing? Mine are on the pillar and i use them to help me tune.

If they are functional go for it. Only reason I have a-pillar gauges still is for an Aerofoce because my stock GTP sees 3-4* kr.

its rice. functional or not, a pillar gauges are there to demand attention....that is rice.

if its actually needed mount it somewhere else. important gauges in the general line of sight with the cluster, less important ones in the centercounsel dash area.
