Vette(s): 1979 L-82, 3 spd auto, car was originally Lt. Beige currently painted Sportsman Red, Doeskin leather interior, 103,000 miles......
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.
I wanted a Corvette my whole life, but I never dreamed of all the wonderful people I would meet because of it!
Vette(s): 1972 conv, 4-speed, 350, 200hp, numbers match, rally wheels, war bonnett yellow w/white top. good condition, nice driver.
I would like to change/fix the trip odometer on mine. What breaks that they do not work? I would like to have the secret receipe for removeing the dash to get to that stuff. I am also planning on replaceing the head light switch while i am in there. THANKS to all who can help.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org , his website is: www.redlineg.com . He is located in Humbolt, TN which is near Jackson and Memphis. John is a good guy.
