Default Replacing Gauges on 1995 Formula 252

I need some advise and guidance on replacing gauges on my 1995 Formula. Just had the dash inserts poweder coated, put new steering wheel and buttons on as well as replaced the acrylic mirror. Looks great until I look at gauges. The holes are 3'7/8" and 1'7/8. Seems like new gauges use 3'3/8 wholes. before pic of dash. Can anyone advise. I guess I will have to rewire as well.

Thanks in advance.

These are the standard sizes for most gauges. Not sure if you have room to cut bigger holes.
  • 2-1/16" - Standard Size Guages. Water Temp, Volts, Oil Pressure, etc...
  • 2-5/8" - Monster Size Guages. Water Temp, Volts, Oil Pressure, etc...
  • 3-3/8" - Standard Size Tachometer or Speedometer
  • 4-5/8" - Monster Size Tachometer or Speedometer

When I had the FASTech dash redone, holes were enlarged. Also, on Speedo and RPM a extra bezel installed to take up space. Rewiring was necessary, however Full Throttle Marine did mine.

Sounds like I need that largest size. Here is the dash after powder coating. Gauges are sad.really would finish look with as rings and silver faces.

Is it recommendable to put in 3 3/8 if my opening is 3 7/8 now. Special Bezel? Or just go to the monster 4 5/8 for speedo and rpm.

If you look at mine, I used an extra bezel.

You could probably use the adapter bezels https://www.cpperformance.com/p-151-...ge-bezels.aspx
