Trans temp gauge that will blend in with my old Dodge OE gauges

Now that I have spent way too much on building a solid 727 in my 72 D200, I really want a trans temp gauge. The issue is I cannot find one that blends in with the stock gauges. Oh, and I want to stick it in the hole the clock is currently in. So I am facing ascetic and fitment issues. Any ideas? Anyone else done this? Is there a particular model or brand out there I am missing?

I always ran the ole "Stewart Warner" guage in the left wing panel of the dash. I never trusted the OEM guages in the dash and used the wings for temp, oil pressure, vacume, and a couple of switches for additional lighting and winch control.

I never liked things hanging below the dash as my girlfriend's legs would always be hitting them and that would interrupt the night time activities....

Normally, I would just biuld a whole new gauge pod. But I really want to keep this trucks OE appearance.

Those silver blank panels always looked naked to me and should have had guages installed at the OEM level. Pretty spacious cab but I always ran with a couple other people and anything else would have made it crowded.

That is something else I want to avoid. I want to use the space for the old clock to prevent crowding.
