I just went through this as I have a 3500 watt laser at work. I had some aftermarket gauges laying around so I made some plates in order to house them. I used aluminum but in retrospect I think brushed stainless steel might look nicer.













I didn't like how low the speedo and tach sat in the housing. So I raised them up a bit.

The biggest hangup with the dash kits has always been the center console. Trying to make a plate that accomodates the ashtray doors is a pain in the ass. Also trying to make a plate for the automatic shift indicators is tough as well.

I think that if you made the parts in plain stainless and let the buyer "grain" the stainless with 120 sandpaper in whichever direction they feel, it would look great. That way you wouldn't have to worry about placement in the machine and having people say "I wanted the grain sideways, not up and down".
