New Guages

I'm thinking of replacing the guages in my 54' Chevy pickup. I had planned on buying a set of older style Dolphin guages that I found on Ebay. They are new guages, still in the orginal box, just the older style with the Dolphin on the face. I have seen some different posts on more than one sight that gives them a bad rap. So now I'm having second thoughts about them.
I would like to find a set of guages that are quad style with a 90 ohm fuel sending unit so I can still use the gm unit in my fuel tank. The biggest problem is I need to stay in the $300.00 range if possible.
I also found a 6 guage digital panel on Jeg's sight that I like, but I would have to modify the guage opening in the dash. That's not a big problem, but I would like to know if anyone has had any experience with these type of guage panels. I think the brand is Cyberdyne.
If anybody has had experience with either the Dolphin of Cyberdyne guages please let me know your opinion

I have a set of Dolphin gauges in my 76 F100. Mechanically, they work fine. The biggest problem I had was using the stock tank, I had to do a lot of work to make the sending unit work.

Biggest problem I have with them is I think they look kinda chintzy now that they are installed. Some day, i will update them, but they work fine for now.
