fabricating angle rings for gauges in truck ???

okay, i ordered angle rings for my 2 1/16" autometer gauges, but i need one for my 3 3/8" speedometer. autometer doesnt make one, so i was wondering if anyone had an idea. does pvc come in 3 3/8" ??? remember, this is the inside diameter of the hole, not of the entire pipe. thanks

Try McMaster Carr, Grainger, or an industrial supply shop. I'm sure there are gauges in different industries that are this diameter.

Have you checked the industrial supply companies I've mentioned? If there's a gauge that size, there's likely a bezel that size. Perhaps 3.5" not 3 3/8.

Check all the various gauge companies such as VDO, Autometer, Sun, Stewart Warner, etc. If it's not a standard industry size, you're probably going to have someone make it up for you..

It should be no problem for a machine shop to turn out a 3 3/8" id piece of aluminum. Supply them with your smaller bezels & they can cut the angle to match. Shouldn't be terribly expensive & will look much better than PVC.
