Default Hi All! Noob Questions!

Hi All.
Im Andy, and the proud owner of a right hand drive64 Resto-Mod that ive just bought over here in the UK. The owner has just emigrated to Florida.
It is about 98% finished. It has an SRIII chassis, LS2 engine(carburetted) and TKO500 gearbox, Dana differential ..
Id like to make some changes to the interior, as the original donor car(originally from Ohio) was missing its instrument panel and instruments when he bought it.(except for the clock).
It has currently got a stainless steel dash, with Autometer gauges, but i want to return the interior to a more stock-look, and have got my old school buddy (who lives in Illinois), to get me a 64 dash with instruments via EBay.
Before he ships them to me, i wanted to get the gauges refurbished, and i wondered if any of you can recommend any companies to do this?
A quick look at a few on-line corvette specialists suggests that the auxiliary gauges are cheap enough to buy new , so i assume id just need the Speedo , Tach, and clock doing..
Any advice would be appreciated
PS why is there no "tech" forums for the C2? am i in the wrong place?
Regards
Andy

Welcome to the Barn!

Your in the right spot. To answer your last question, we don't have a lot of C1 and C2 owners here yet so until we get more traffic in this section we have not added a Tech section.

Hope one of the few here can come along and answer your gauge question.

There ARE companies that specialize in refurbishing factory gauges like that.

I don't know right off the top of my head, but a DuckDuckGo search should turn something up!

This should get you started!

I have used Rogers Clock for my gauges, nice work, but a little pricy. Click on the index below.
