no prob... might i suggest using some coarse thread sheetmetal screws instead of the push pins they give you... hold better and smaller holes...

water temp you just replace the stock sending unit with the one that comes with the gauge and run wire...

would a 2" gauge be ok to put in the 2 1/16" hole?

also, wat are your thoughts on a digital tach? would it be hard to wire using the stock wires?

I think it would look better with black fasteners. Check your local Ace Hardware store for some. Black Philips head would be the cat's @#$.
