Any single DIN gauge panel should work. Glowshift has one for $13

I just made my own out of 1/8" plexiglass and made brackets to attach it to the original mounting points for the equalizer. Roughed up the plexiglass a little with 180 grit sandpaper and painted it flat black. This way I was able to set the gauge panel back 3/4" or so, so the gauges didnt stick out of the dash. Glued black felt around the panel to hide the gap between the gauge panel and the dash panel. I also put holes for 4 indicator LEDs for various functions in the panel.
