Can anybody supply the rough measurements for the ST pod hood? I want to see if my iphone 5 would fit without having to chop the dash.

Will do,
Ill measure and post pictures,
When doing your own pod; imperfections can be hidden by using some filler and sandpaper followed by spraying with primer and having it hydrodipped in a matt finish,
A bit of money involved in that process but some results.

Funny enough i had sprayed what i currently made in matt black plasicote and looks good. Just as ive made it with wood that the curves dont look slick like the original ST pod that curves. Was thinking to buy the plastic trim off ebay and cut with dremel to fit if the sizes are right. :-)

Sorry to have left you hanging mate,
I have been intending to get measurements many times but ended up getting side tracked into somthing else.
Here's the pod with a reputable Stanley Measuring tape.
If you need more details let me know and ill get to you a bit quicker ;)

Fantastic! Cheers lenny. Very helpful but it looks that unfortunately the iphone5 is about a cm and half bigger so doubt it would fit. Back to the drawing board i think lol

No mate,
My gauges are 52mm
In terms of height
Just put it facing at a bit of a slant you wont notice to look at it because it will be facing up towards you,

In terms of width
The front surround on the pod is rubber lip its around 3mm wide
