loking for a 1-3/4 inch dash gauge

I find dash gauges that fit a 1-1/2 inch hole, and a 2 inch (and 2-1/16 inch) hole ... but I'd like to find an oil pressure or water temperature gauge that is made for a 1-3/4 inch ( 1.75 ) hole in my dash ....
Any ideas or links ?

If you don't want to expand the holes for the two inch gauge you can do what I did. I took a piece of 1/8" aluminum and cut a 2" circle. Then cut a 1 1/2 hole in it. Polished it up and installed the gauges. I did it on my lathe. You could check with a metal or sign shop. They might be able able to punch out the pieces. Might even have scrap polished stainless steel that they could use.
