Speedo resto
 
Hey gang,
just picked up this old unknown speedometer at an antique shop and want to get it restored. Who have you guys found to be the best at this? I'll post pics later when I unwrap it... it's huge and really cool!

Is this one of those projects when you start a piece at a time?

There is a VW vendor from NC that buys them at the shows and he and his son restores them and also sells them. I can not think of his name right now (brain fart) :yelling: I will post it when I remember.

I've heard of Bob's in Michigan but know very little about them or any other company.

Check the streetrod magazines,

Supposed to be good, not cheap.


Or search on the HAMB.

They had some 90 MPH ones as well... There's a matching gauge set for hat as well... easily source-able on ebay.
