I sent my speedo and tach down to Corvette Instrument Service in Florida for them to fix my trip odometer, calibration and repaint the faces.

I cant wait to see the results.
 
Anybody have experience with this fella (Roger Scott)?

I'd like to know the results, Paul (Lukester) had some gauge work done with custom silk screening and it looked like factory! Not sure who did that for him?

So I put the tach and speedo back today and all seems to be working well(at least the tach and trip odometer that is). I havent road tested it yet due to some idioit (me) making a big ole mess in the garage today......
All in all they look pretty good, I am a bit dissapointed in the reface work on the tach, the numbers, redline and needle look fantastic, however the small L82 at the bottom  looks a little smeared. I'll post some pics soon.

I guess I didn't see this originally.  I've had Roger do a few things for me, and while they seem good at first, I've had 2 speedos done by him fail later on.  Of course, I can't say for sure if it was caused by something he did (or didn't) do, I don't think I'll be sending him anything in the future.

Last January (2011), I sent my speedo to Bill Harrison - also located in Florida.  This is his web page:  http://harrisonspeedometer.com/
 
I had him convert it from the 85 to 140 mph; calibrate it; and keep the mileage, (because I am the original owner).
 
He did a great job.  No complaints.

 I was told that my trip meter had some sort of plastic bushing that GM used briefly in 79 before they decided to return to using a bronze bushing.

I found this set of instructions to remove / repair the speedo on a 1972 Vette.  Hope this helps.

I have used Red Line Gauge and Clock Repair several times and always with perfect and fast results.  John Dvorski is the owner and the guy who does the repair.  His email is redlinec@bellsouth.net , his website is: www.redlineg.com .  He is located in Humbolt, TN which is near Jackson and Memphis.  John is a good guy.
