On August 1, 2016, i ordered a dual pillar gauge pod from gauge from Ortizcustompods I received the item on October 6, 2016. The quality of paint was questionable at best, but I figured I can live with it. I installed the pillar the same. It was not my first time installing a pillar so the installation went fast. While installing I noticed that paint already started pilling off in some spots. After installing it I did not drive the car.
Next day, when I opened my car I noticed that one of the pods separated from the pillar (as shown on the picture below). I switched back to the original pillar and wrote the email to the company. Next day I received a response. It was an apology and promise to help. Unfortunately, that where it ended. Ortizcustompods did not honor their warranty and never contacted me again. I wanted to warn all forum members about the ortizcustompods products quality and treatment of costumers.
Last week i decided to fix the pillar myself. The pod separated effortlessly from the pillar. I applied a black epoxy from Autozone. And the problem is solved. Now I just have to find a matching paint.
