Gauge Refacing

I have some original '67 dash gauges that have slight rust/brown spots.

Anyone have a good source for refacing gauges?

For my vintage motorcycle gauge refacing/rebuilds, I send them to Palo Alto Speedometer. They come back better than new. Give them a try.

A full rebuild of a combination speedo/tach including new chrome rim, glass, gears, recalibration, etc. cost $250. There are a few others out there that I've heard are cheaper, but Palo Alto never let me down, great service and people to deal with.
