    if you are asking becuase you are buying after market guages then yes, you are right, 2 5/8ths is what everyone has been using, and what i plan to use when i finally do this project. Otherwise, as you probably know, they arent really guages, it is all one flat piece of plastic with the guges on it and the bezel making it look like seperate guages.

    You can fit 2 5/8" gauges, but the holes actually measure closer to 2 1/16". You just have to modify the panel a little.
