fancy screen on old raytheon radar?

Hi,
Bought a boat which has an old raytheon R20XX radar.
It works, but I am in the process of upgrading all the electronics to the latest flavor of raymarine (all of the old raytheon electronics did not work except the radar)

I am wondering is there any way to replace the instrument and use the old XX radar? I'm fine with not having the latest radar, but color, and a better UI would be nice.

You might do a "steampunk" kind of thing, where you use the old bezel and controls over the new equipment. That could be cool!
