Gauge cluster refurbishing



*For more information on gauge restoration please see my web site: classygauges.com

If your gauges no longer work, if they bounce wildly, or you would like to customize your cluster, I would love to help you out whether you are attempting a restoration on your own and just need those hard to find parts or you would like a professional restoration.

The cost to refurbish a gauge cluster is $100.00 and includes the following:

1. Disassemble and Assess Functionality
2. Cleaning & Lubrication
3. Any Necessary Repairs
4. Calibration
5. Restoring paint
6. Set Odometer

Classy Gauges also offers unique customization options, available both as an add-on with a professional restoration and as products on the website for the DIY project:

Altmeter to Voltmeter conversion
White, Black & Custom Vinyl Decals
Chome, Polished, and Custom Color or Patterned Outer & Inner Bezels
Luminescent Gauge Inserts
LED Bulb Conversion
Speedometer cable gear change to account for larger size tires. This modification is recommended if you have oversized tires and your speedometer is not accurate.

In my experience, many of the problems people experience with their gauges can be fixed without new parts. I am not quick to say the gauge is broken and just replace it. I spend between two and three hours detailing each cluster.

If all of your gauges work, or as long as I can fix the ones that are broken, the restoration will only cost you $100.00. If I am unable to fix a broken part, I will contact you and ask if you would like a replacement part along with the additional cost.

I have only come across a small percentage of gauges that were beyond repair and most of those had physical damage. Because I don't know how much work your cluster needs without looking at it I can't give you a firm quote until I have it in my hands.

I bench test every gauge to ensure everything is functioning correctly. When your gauge restoration is complete, I will contact you with the total cost. The turn around time is between two and four weeks, varying seasonally.

Please pack your gauge cluster very well and I recommend that you get the shipping insurance and value the cluster at a minimum of $200.00. The insurance costs about $4.00 and shipping is usually between $10 and $15 (you pay both ways). Please send your gauge cluster to:

Kevin Capito
14314 South Shaggy Mountain Rd.
Herriman Utah 84096

Also, please include a detailed note explaining exactly what your gauges are doing or not doing along with your name, phone number, address, and email address. This helps expedite the restoration process and ensure quick communication.

I accept payment by check, money order, credit card, or PayPal. If using PayPal or a credit card, simply go to the website and click the Pay Now button at the bottom of the home page.

If you have any questions please feel free to call or email me.

Here is a before and after picture of the gauge cluster I did for The Motor City Mad Man himself Ted Nugent. This gauge cluster is out of Ted’s 1966 half cab the guys over at BuildaBronco restored for him. You can check out the build thread here http://classicbroncos.com/forums/sho...ght=ted+nugent.







Here are a few examples of what can be done.











































Ok, Here is the new voltmeter we have been working on. This mod has been added to our list of options if you are interested. The pictures are a bit grainy but the new volt gauge is almost indistinguishable from the stock Amp gauge.







Here it is in white.

I have a cluster I was planning to refurbish myself in a few months. Since I'm right here in Utah I would be interested. I can clean and repaint as necessary but actual repairs are another thing. Would you do the volt meter swap during a refurb if I supplied it?

Two or three days but if I have to order parts I'm at the mercy of the vendor. I will keep you informed as it goes through the process.

Even better. I'll be at the meet and greet on the 11th. I'll make a point to introduce myself.

I sent Kevin my gauge cluster for refurb and he has been sending me pictures of the progress. I must say, it's looking real good and Kevin's communication is spectacular. I can't wait to see the end product.
