Yes, here are some pictures. I used 3 3/8" Classic Gauges, they fit the bezels great just need to trim the openings on the dash some.

I think yours looks even better with the updated speedometer. Very nice look.

Thanks. I had a matching Dolphin speedo but damaged it and ended up with the one shown. You don't really notice unless you're inspecting.

Is your Speedometer mechanical or electric? I am thinking of going to an electric when I put in the C6.

It's electric. I replaced the original wiring with a Painless kit.

Thank you for all your input and great ideas, I sent the gauges to Birdsnest, turns out, as you already guessed, they are both fried. They rebuilt them for me and I am waiting to get them back so I can re install them and get her on the road.- Just one observation with this forum-I am amazed at the response and suggestions you all come up with. Thanks to all.
