you do really nice work man.

i was wondering... retaining the stock dash, and taking out the sweep speedo and idiot lights... would it be possible to do this..

on the left, fuel level and fuel pressure ( 2 1/16 gauges) then 3 3/8" Tach and Speedo... then on the right, vaccum, volts, temp and oil pressure (2 1/16")

basically, how big of a plate do i have to work with?

Jutny,

You have an opening approximately 16 3/4" wide and 4" tall on the left and 4 1/4" on the right. Look closely at your speedo and you will notice that there is a slight taper in height. Shrink that by about 1/2" minimum on each end for a border and about 1/4" minimum border on top and bottom. You would have to measure the actual bezel width of the gauges you suggested and see if they fit.

What you suggest sounds like a lot to cram in the area you have to work with. Sketch it out on paper to scale and see what it looks like.

Good luck with the project.
