    ebay usually has them. Raid do a 3-tier one so the guages are aimed towards the driver. usually advertised on flea bay. Personally I'd just make my own out of ally or whatever u fancy, should be able to pick up some quality ally for a good price....and maybe on ebay

    They are a doddle to make -

    Get a piece of whatever & cut it to 60mm x 190 mm. Make out the centre lines of the palte and the positions of the gauges and then using a hole saw, just cut the number of holes you want. It's best to use slightly smaller hole saw (say 51mm) and then you can open the hole up and adjust it so the gauges all fit perfectly afterwards.

    I've made 3 today, but I need them all

    Nooooo, they are gonna be sandwiched together to make one thick one, so I can recess the bezels below the surface. One has 52mm holes, to mount the gauges in, and the others have 58mm holes to take the bezels.

    I'm using 3mm thick PVC sheet BTW

    Ah im with you, i started reading that then thought 'why not use thicker plate?' but then i noticed the bit about recessing them. Are the bezels used to secure the gauge to the plate? Ive never actually looked at any gauges.

    Aye - the bezels are 58mm dia and the gauge body is 52mm-ish dia. There's a crappy bracket that draws the gauge up until the bezel sits flush against the plate.

    If that makes no sense at all, have a look at yours
