Aftermarket gauges for cubby of 71 Camaro??

Can I get some suggestions for aftermarket triple gauge package that would fit almost 'seamlessly' into the center console cubby hole of the 71 Camaro? We are replacing the motor with a fresh one, and would like to keep a better eye on it vital signs than the 'dummy' lights would be able to give us. Maybe even a driver side window post (I forget what you call that) gauge package could work. Show me some pics of your gauge setup?

70 Z28
I've got to make a smaller panel. Due to a broken capillary tube on my Stewart Warner mechanical oil pressure gauge I changed it for a Auto Meter LED electric cause I'm into my spark plugs reading and always touching that area and it won't harm an electric wire like it did my tube.

Maybe get a gauge bezel and put desired gauges in?
Or above where the plastic meets the metal a 3 gauge cluster?
Dunno...
I have a 3 under the radio. Hard to see. Never look at them.

Oops I meant mechanical water temp gauge I replaced.

I just used an Auto Meter 3 gauge panel and their 2/16" gauges, mechanical oil pressure, water temp, and trans temp.

Not the best pic, but it fits well.

I went with the period-correct black and white Stewart Warner gauges mounted where the 67 Camaros were (amp-oil press-water temp).

I like it to look like it would in 1970. The factory console gauges were a joke IMHO.

Or just swap in a set of the Dakota digital VHX ones and have everything in one place ;-). Cool modern gauges with cool features, I have a set in my car and love them.
