kph speedometer
« on: May 27, 2014, 10:02:19 PM »
Can anyone recommend an instrument/gauge restorer that they have personal experience of? I have a 200kph speedo from a 69 and it is in need of cosmetic restoration, obviously don't want to mess it up.....
Not looking for anyone locally, would far rather ship the gauge back to the USA for professional service by the right person.

Anyone used either of those recommended restorers recently?

I used Abbott for my temp gauge.  The restored it with NOS guts.  They do a lot of concours stuff.
