Its close!!! about 4" on each side.

Yes I sent them to Steve Miller @ Livorsi. I think it was around $28 per 2" gauge & $50 per large gauge. New needles, glass, chrome ring, face & re-calibrate. It was cheaper then new or even swapping to auto meter's

Built a new mount for the larger Merc. controls. Hoping it looks cleaner with one set rather then the two sets of controls.

Subscribed! Looks very nice and I second glassdave, seat belts in an open boat definitely can be deadly. The shifter and throttle cluster looks very nice to me! The bilge cleaned up nicely as well. Keep us updated man! What power was in it?

I looked at this thing for 6 months every time I drove past. Glad it found a good home. Keep up the good work.
