That red tach gauge face is sweet. Now why didn't I think of that?

Did you have to buy a whole set, or did you find that single face somewhere?

PS - Your tach needle looks a little lower now than before. They're terribly hard to get put back on in the exact place where they were removed. I don't think I'll ever take mine off again. Took four tries with installing and removing them to get it right!

My friend referred me to a guy that has his own business doing them. Luckily for me, he is only a few miles away from my house. I dropped off the gauge cluster yesterday afternoon and picked it back up this morning. I wanted to get it done before the car show next weekend.

Here is my friends car that he did

I was going to do yellow on the sides, but decided to just try the red first. Since the guy is so close, I can have it done just about anytime. I think the yellow would look good now that I have the cluster back in.

You guys should consider updating your side markers to yellow, too. They would go great with the yellow gauges.

With yellow and red, it would give the car that Ronald Mcdonald look.

It would still look good though.
