ADD TURN SIGNALS/HIGH BEAMS/WARNING LAMPS

By far the most popular addition to a gauge set.  We can install lamps several ways, the two at left are the most popular.

SHAPED LENSES:
We shape the lens, install an LED and a cavity behind a colored lens for an original-equipment look.  very clean and professional.  We are tghe only company that can offer this on a custom basis. Any color, any shape.




ON THE DIAL LEDS:
For those who are budget concious, we can easily punch holes in the dial and install LEDS.  We use a flat top lamp with a color-yeyed bezel for a clean installation.


HOW DOES IT ALL WORK?
Getting your custom set is relatively easy, and best of all, no surprises.  We need as much information as possible, What you are working on, what the goal is, engine, trans, etc.  From there we can provide you with a quote to get going.  All custom orders require a deposit to start.  Lead time varies from project to project, anywhere from 2 weeks to 8 weeks.

Once the deposit is accepted, we can schedule the artwork.  You will receive a full size proof sheet within a week to 10 days.  Once that is accepted, the dials and components are scheduled. When the parts are ready, we will provide images of the final product for approval prior to shipping.

INSPIRATION
You tell us what you are looking for.  The better the description, the quicker we can design something.  This customer wanted tachs the replicate the Smiths tachs on the original 289 Cobras.

DEVELOPMENT
Every customer who places an order receives a full size proof sheet via email that shows EXACTLY what is going to be created.  The proof sheets are made from the actual files that we send to be screen-printed.  We work solely in CAD so accuracy and speed is maintained along with very high quality.

EXECUTION
Images of the final parts are emailed to you before we ship.  We want to make sure that your parts are completed exactly as you want.

65 CORVETTE-RETROPOWER
This customer wanted the high style modern graphics of our Redline gauges in a bolt-in replacement cluster for a 65 Corvette.  We also added a color-matching blueline instead of a redline accent to match the exterior color.  Hi hi-res LED backlit dials are not only great looking at night bust also easy to read.

MUSTANG MACH 40- ECKERT’S ROD AND CUSTOM
Just about every bell and whistle on this kit.  Dished, formed backlit dials, relocated movements, custom speedo and tachometer ranges.  3-3/8” electronic stepper motor fuel pressure and vacuum/boost gauges.  All with integrated turn signals, high beam and brake lamp.  This is the new standard for a custom gauge kit.

NO RETROFIT RETROFIT
Instead of going the full retrofit route, it is usually much more economical to start with one of our base gauge packages and re-create the OE graphics.  This customer did just that.  We used the basic speedo and quad gauge kit and re-created the 69 Firebird graphics to match.  How he has a brand-new set of gauges, with electronic speedometer and OE style indicators.

CUSTOM RETROFIT PANEL
This customer used a 39 Dodge dash insert in his build.  We added a tach to the standard cluster, re-created the graphics and built custom matching pointers. The before and after tells the whole story, what a difference!

NO ONE ELSE CAN DO WHAT WE DO
69 Mustang dash, using our exclusive mounting bracket, designed and laser-cut in-house, we created this one-off set very easily.  We used our 66 series graphics and built backlit combo gauges, tach and an electronic speedometer to the customer's specifications.  Backlit, with turn signals in the combo gauges, high beam and shift indicator in the tach.  No other company offers this level of execution.
MORE OPTIONS
Custom colors, graphics, pointers, it can all be done for you. Laser etching lenses with your or your customer’s logo, its all up to you. Color matching dials, your specific graphics. Anything you can dream up we can do.

CUSTOM LIGHTING
LEFT: Custom color led backlit lighting.  We can do any color you want, in a backlit dial. We achieve this by printing dials in house with our unique screen process.
RIGHT: LED strip lighting can be used on perimeter lit gauges to achieve a similar result.  We can install colored or white LED strips for a super-bright lighting effect on traditional lit gauges.
72 GM TRUCK PANEL
This customer was installing his 72 Chevy Truck on a 04 Chevy Chassis with a Duramax diesel.  He nneded not only ther basics, but also an EGT, Boost, dual air pressure and trans temp. We even custom made the pointers with the original-look hub!
Click the pic snd you will see the proper redlines and dual -layer dials, similar to the original.

RIGHT: you can see the integrated warning lamps into the deadfront dials-invisible when off. No one else could pull this off.
CUSTOM INDICATORS
How about a compact, professional way to display warning light functions?  Our exclusive indicator gauges can be made in any color, with any 4 functions, with any bezel to match our instruments.

MORE CUSTOM INDICATORS.
This customer needed to monitor functions in his Hemi powered Jeep TJ. Warning lamps all triggered by the ECU

2010/1969 CAMARO DETROIT SPEED
This application incorporates a 2010 Camaro interior in a 69 Camaro.  NVU retrofit new components properly calibrated to function with the LS powerplant while mixing some of the new and old graphics to create a look that fits the build just right. The fully backlit gauges and pointers also incorporate a OE style info center with illuminated earning icons.
CUSTOM OUTPUTS AND RANGES
This customer needed ranges that are typically out of the range of standard instruments.  By running an output channel from the CAN, we were able to create a package that was specific to this vehicle.  Full sweep backlit custom CAN gauges are here.

Another no retrofit retrofit.
We came up with a unique mounting bracket to install a set of our 3-1 gauges and a clock in the stock 69 Chevelle panel.  We also built a matching Carbon-fiber look shift indicator that illuminates each gear as its selected.  Can any other company offer something like this?


UNIQUE FINISHES
This set was designed to match a mid 60s Ford.  We hand spuyn metal dials to come up with the spun look.  From there, a matching design was printed.  Now the customer has a matching set for this car.

LEGACY POWER WAGON
Best of both worlds: We started with our backlit full sweep stepper motor gauges, then combined the LED through the dial technology with the graphics from the 1940 seroes, and capped it all off with bomber bezels and domed lenses for an authentic look.
