Very shallow Oil Pressure & Battery Voltage Gauges?

I'm in the middle of designing a custom instrument panel and looks like I have room for Oil Pressure & battery Volts gauges below the water & gas. (See picture). The panel fits in front of an '95 OEM instrument panel.
Trying to make it look similar to the '37.
These will have to be 2 inch diameter gauges.
The gauges will have to be very shallow to fit in front of the OEM instrument cluster and fit behind the custom panel.

1) Connections for the gauges would have to be on the side and not on the back. Are there gauges with this type of connections?
2) What are shallowest after market Oil Pressure & Voltage gauges you have seen?
