Can you PM me a photo? And i'm going to go measure the height of my head unit to make sure it will work. If you can do me a favor and measure the distance from the far left of the left gauge hole and the far right of the right gauge hole as well as the diameter of the hole (I assume 52mm) that would help me figure out if it would work and if it does I'll buy it.
They are made out of .040" steel. They are 52mm holes and I wanna say there is like 3/16" between them (So approximatly 6.5" from far left to far right). I can double check the spacing for you tomorrow.

add on accessory. I thought it complimented the gauge hood and made sense with the convertible top.

I measured just now and it is 6-3/4" from the edge of one opening to the edge of the other.....You do realize what I ment was that you could simple cut the material between the gauge openings to make the slot right? I don't have any plans to make any more of these, just trying to clean out the garage.

Yes, I know I can cut it. I just wanted to make sure the hole wasn't too large already.

PM me, I'll take it.

Just an ABS plate with some holes in it. The real work was shaving down the angle rings so that all 3 gauges still fit in a DIN-sized area behind the plastic panel.
