I meet someone that will cut'em out for me, they will be made out of aluminum. I just don't know how to cut the gauge holes out. I am asking because I have to buy a half sheet of aluminum just to get a 2.2 x 7.4 inch chunk for my gauges. And that would be expensive just for that! But if I figure out a way to cut the 1.5 inch holes I would let you know.

Try finding a clipboard made out of aluminum. Thats what I used for the block off plate on my cold air intake. works great. Often large corporations give them out for free.

I use a holesaw drill bit in a drill press for my gauge panels.

Thanks Rod! I wasn't asking for a profit...I just needed some contributors, But now that I know all that, I am not going to have that dude do it...He was talking 50 bucks for a half sheet. Crazy

i have one from them in my '95, the chrome one, and it looks HOT !!! Sorry no digi cam, but I hate the glare from the sun when it bounces off at the right angle, CAN"T SEE S**T.........so get the aluminum.
