Any one intrested in gauge plates?

I meet someone that will cut'em out for me, they will be made out of aluminum. I just don't know how to cut the gauge holes out. I am asking because I have to buy a half sheet of aluminum just to get a 2.2 x 7.4 inch chunk for my gauges. And that would be expensive just for that! But if I figure out a way to cut the 1.5 inch holes I would let you know.

Thanks Rod! I wasn't asking for a profit...I just needed some contributors, But now that I know all that, I am not going to have that dude do it...He was talking 50 bucks for a half sheet. Crazy
