Post New Gauge Cluster Panel & Gauges For 1970 Chevelle

Okay,so I know that I haven't bought the car yet,but am starting to think about what I want to do to it when it's here.Here's what I THINK that I want to do for my gauges.Tell me what you think.

Cluster Panel:
1/8" Think Piece Of Polished Stainless Steel With Holes Precut To Gauge Dimensions and Direct Bolt-In to Chevelle Dash Panel

Speedometer/Left Center/5"
Tachometer/Right Center/5"
Transmission Temperature/Top Left Corner/2-5/8"
Water Temperature/Top Center/2-5/8"
Fuel Level/Top Right Corner/2-5/8"
Voltmeter/Bottom Left Corner/2-5/8"
Oil Pressure/Bottom Center/2-5/8"
Clock/Bottom Right Corner/2-5/8"

The piece of Stainless Steel that this company uses polishes it so nice that you can use it for a mirror.I sent in my sketch to them and I hope to be hearing from them soon.I don't know how I'll mount the gauges to hold themselves to the piece of steel,but I will find a way.All of the gauges have a black casing ring with a white face.

I know that my Speedometer and Tach are going to be Mechanical.Could someone specify which of the other should be Electrical or Mechanical?They're Auto Meter Gauges.

So, this stainless panel will bolt in where the OEM instrument panel is now?? Do you have the round gauge dash, or the sweeping style? I'd like to see that. Is the company you sent the sketch to a metal fabrication shop, or do they specialize in automotive stuff?
Sorry, I don't have any answers as far as which gauges should be mechanical or electrical. I just wanted to ask you about your dash panel.... It sounds like it'll be pretty sharp.
