  • Face plate on R2 speedo needs to be redone

    I bought a nos gauge cluster and tach for our R2 project. I can not find an nos speedometer (160 mph) for this car. I found one with 47,000 on it and while it looks ok, it does not look as nice as the gauge cluster and tach. No surprise there. So I would like to send off all three and have the speedo face restored to match the other two which are perfect. Also while they have it open they can recalibrate it and give it a lube. Any suggestions on a top notch place that can do an outstanding job on refacing an R2 speedometer? Please advise. Thanks

      The great thing about the 63 and up gages is the bezels come off with just the bending of a few tabs. I quick repaint of the needle and a NOS bezel off the clock delete insert is usually all it takes. I also found a tip in how to do the GT Hawk speedo and tach. The bezels are a bear to get off, but the GT Hawk bezel off a junk clock goes back on with just the 6 tabs.

          Bob thanks for the lead. That is pretty close to my office.

          John, thank you! You make a very good point. If they mess it up, I will have a backup.
