Low cost gauge dress up
 
3 Attachment(s)
Aftermarket gauges run over $500 to work with my 4L60E transimission.
I'm looking for a way to dress up OEM gages (that I already have) so they look like an aftermarket gage set set in a nice bezel panel.
If I take the plastic front cover off the instrument cluster then I'm left with gages on a black panel.
If I could buy faces, glass, and bezels, these could be mounted to a panel that hides the rest of the instrument cluster.
1) Does anyone know where I could buy silver faces, front glass, and trim bezels for one 3 3/8 speedometer, and two partial sweep 2 1/16 gauges. (Any brand name)
2) Alternatively, is there a place were I could buy electrically or mechanically broken gauges for parts? (Any brand name)
I plan on mounting a tach on the steering column.
Thanks

I've never tried to brighten up the gauge face itself, but have used some vinyls to spruce up a dash. There is even a mylar/vinyl l that replicates engine turned material. I've used these guys a couple times in the past: Metro Engine Turn Vinyl

I received a bad piece of material once and a phone call resulted in a new piece being posted the next day.
