i think it's original parts group that sells a carbon fiber insert for muscle cars. saw in last mo's pop hot rodding. you have to drill all new holes for gages and mounting and it requires sanding to fit. i have a similar problem with my 66 <--, autometer makes a gauge like 3 and 7/8 in diameter. good luck on this one.
go to www.performanceyears.com and maybe somebody is making inserts over there for sale.

these guys might help, call Ron Johnson at Potomac Classic Pontiacs @ 301-668-0101

or you might try Barry Martin @ Sonic Motors in MI. 810-750-1421
