    Has anyone here had their Speedo cluster redone? If so who did you use? I have emailed 4 different shops around the country inquiring about getting work done but so far no one has gotten back to me. I'm hoping it's just on account of the holidays but a shop that I emailed 4 months ago still hasn't gotten back to me.
    Anyway any info will be appreciated as usual. Have a good day. Steve

    Are you talking about functional repairs, a cosmetic restoration, or full resto?

    Full restoration I guess. Speedo needle jumps some, odometer doesn't work and gas gauge doesn't work.
    There cluster could use some prettying up as well.

    Instrument Specialists (Specialties?) in North Kingstown, RI does it all, BUT you better be sitting down when you get a quote. :eek: Go ahead, ask me how I know. ;)

    LOL....I think I can figure that one out. Did they do a good job and how BAD was the price?

    On an Air Conditioned 67, there's trim from the cluster section all the way to the end on the passenger side. It's about 2" tall, 4 pieces total. The quote was originally $325 and 6 weeks, turned into 6 MONTHS and then he calls and says $625. Then I gave him the receipt number and he said, "well, ok" and I picked it up. Awesome job, but I won't spend the $825 to do the cluster plastic ONLY. I can only imagine the cost to do the instruments also.

    Hey, that's where I was born! Actually, the Naval Dispensary at NAS Quonset Point, but it's what my birth certificate says....

    I also used Instrument Specialties... the have done the clock and cluster. Still waiting for dash pad, arm rests, and other interior trim pieces.

    Very Spendy, better be thinking Cleveland, instead of Benjamin. But quality is superb.
