Default New gauge advice needed

Looking to replace my stock gauges to Livorsi, Gaffrig or Auto Meter. Right now I have bezels that match my dash panel as you can see.

Who wants to photoshop the picture to show me what chrome bezels would look like? or give me your opinion if I should just leave them as is and just replace the gauges or give me your suggestions on what you would do different.

Thanks!!

Had my Gaffrig white rims replaced with SS ones. Not quite what you are looking for, but geting rid of the white made a huge difference. I retained the purple bezels, just had the rims changed over by Livorsi.

Well what do you want to know about Jeff the carbon fiber panels I'm having made the controls or the carbon fiber gauges I'm putting in. If you want to borrow a coulple of the gauges to get an idea let me know. I've got a whole set of Livorsi carbon fiber's with the chrome rims that I have'nt mounted yet. Probably won't have the panels for a couple of weeks so you could run out to your boat and see how they would look.

I think replacing the bezels with chrome or another color that may compliment the boat would make a huge difference. I would suggest trying that first before replacing all the gauges.

Of course, if you need a price on a Livorsi package, let me know I will take good care of you.

Hey, I really like that Fountain center capy you've got on your steering wheel. I'm re-doing my dash right now too, and I've just gotten a new carbon fiber steering wheel, but no center cap. Where'd you get that one?
