Gauges restoration


Anyone recommend where I can get my gauges and console restored and housing refinished?

I saw an article in one of the mags showing you how to do it yourself. Patience and a bit of time but very rewarding.

Mike, can you be more specific on what exactly needs done on each of them?

Are the markings weak on the gauges, or do you mean the bezel itself around the gauges?

Also, on the console, is it because of pitting on top? On mine there was some pitting but because of the sort of brushed aluminum finish I knew I could attack it with one of those metal kitchen scouring pads. It did an amazing job on the pitting on top. In the channel were the chrome is will be more of a challenge if that is the bad area.

DSCF0229.JPGThis worked great for me on the console. I spent quite a bit of time at it. However, I don't think mine was as pitted as your's is.

Maybe try a small section on your's first to make sure it does what you want.
