Default Repro Dunn Aristocrat Gauge Panel

I purchased a reproduction Dunn Aristocrat dash panel a while ago, and today went to put it in the car unfortunately the Rex a Co gauges I have are too long. Does anyone have a suggestion for replacements, that will fit and don't look too modern?

There was an original and at least one reproduction of the REXACO gauges. You might call Bratton's and ask how long their gauges are. Please post what you end up doing as I will have the problem in the future.

The early SW and Rochester gauges are about 3/4 inches deep. The rexaco ones are just over a inch and repo ones are even longer in the back.
