Restoring the correct gauge cluster

Shawn Piper


My car had a gauge cluster housing from a late-model car. 



The wood grain bugged me so I went to Autobahn Dismantling to find a correct style one worthy of restoring.  Interestingly, the wood panel can be removed but the housing itself is actually quite different. The early style has a clear plastic window on the side, mounting holes in the top, and no provisions for attaching the fake wood panel.

The gauges themselves went to The Speedo Shop for rebuilding and recalibration.  The housing went to GCAR and came back looking brand new.

Lovely. I replaced my faux wood kitchen shelf contact paper dash with a clock with a faux wood with a tach that a buddy who can do anything sanded and painted a dozen times, BLACK.  I will not offend the purists with my plan for a clock.
