Can someone paint my speedometer?
Do you know of someone who would repaint the speedometer on the car I’m rebuilding...a ’57 Chevy. It is planned as an updated car, somewhat of a hot rod but I’m not building for power. To match the tachometer and gauges I have found I would like to have the factory speedometer face redone with a white face and black numbers. I thought if there are people who restore factory gauges this might not be difficult. I am looking for leads.
There are people who restore gauges, but to completely repaint an original speedometer would be a difficult task that would probably cost a fair amount of money. However, there is no need to do that because Eckler’s Classic Chevy carries aftermarket white- faced gauges for your car. They look pretty close to original and they fit in the original bezels.
I have purchased components from them on several occasions and have been happy with the service and the items I received. Like many companies that offer their catalogs on the Internet, Eckler’s doesn’t list a postal address, but here is how you can contact them:
