    We ripped out all the old wiring and now I guess we should put new gauges in the dash. I looked around a little but did not really find anything decent for the 4.5" holes. Granted, I only looked for a few mins. What did you guys do for your two gauge chevy dash ?....

    I guess I could just open the dash to 5"...


    Thanks, Paul...

    I've been using '51 - '52 Chevrolet gauges in mine. If using later engines, I replace the 30 lb oil pressure gauge with a Powerglide 60 pounder ...

    Have had a lot of problems with their gauges. We use a lot of Dolphin for budget builds and Dakota digital for all other's.
