That's right Livininharrow Canada, I wanted to keep them inside. I have all the original guts and gauges in case a grand child or great grand child wants to return it to original, but for me I like easy to read. Once I positioned the round gauges into the bezel, laying face down on a work bench, I filled around them with black silicone. Took a week to completely harden as it was pretty thick. But now they are shock proof. Ha Ha.
