Keeping Tabs

Updating a tired instrument cluster

To me there are few things more aggravating than cruising down the road while watching and listening to my speedo needle bouncing and squeelin'. It always screws up my concentration as I try to remember if my half-tank fuel reading is really a quarter or an eighth. I know I could remedy the situation by installing a set of aftermarket gauges, but in this particular car I really like the looks of the stock cluster-even with its scuffed lens and dull bezel. Well, thanks to the folks at Classic Industries my troubles can be remedied in a few hours, and the old Chevy II's dash will end up looking like new.

Armed with this good news, and a box full of goodies from Classic, I swung by to see my pals over at Stitz Street Rods to see if they'd let me photograph the cluster being rebuilt-while they did the work, of course. As usual, Erin agreed to help and had the cluster handled in a matter of minutes. All that's left is to get the rest of the car to look as good as its new gauge cluster. Maybe if I just leave the car at the shop they maye hint. Anyway, take a look at the accompanying images and see how good a new, and correctly working '63-'65 Chevy II dash from Classic Industries, could make your car look.
