Corvette Dash Cluster Restoration

“Corvette dash, gauge, and instrument cluster restoration and rebuilding is an art.”

Sit behind the wheel of your Corvette and try to not look at the gauges. It’s impossible! The instrument cluster and gauges are typically the first thing a driver sees when he gets in the driver’s seat. Unfortunately there are many details that are often overlooked during the restoration of a Corvette dash cluster, but you won’t find that here! We have decades of experience to ensure you will not only have a beautiful cosmetic restoration, but also a proper mechanical restoration for your instruments to function and perform as intended. Inside and out, Corvette Specialties of MD West will see that no details are overlooked!

Many vendors offer restoration services for your prized components, but few actually perform the services on-site. When considering where to send your prized possessions, be sure to ask “Where are the services being performed?”.  You can be certain our services are performed in our own facility.

Be careful!

Please do not let this happen to you! The left hand lower corner of 1963-1967 dash clusters is very vulnerable. Without the headlight motor switch in place there is a large slot that is very weak if box is mishandled. Be sure to leave plenty of space and use adequate boxes and cushioning materials!

In case you were wondering,  we did repair this cluster!

 

WHEN SENDING PARTS, PLEASE BE SURE TO INCLUDE OUR RESTORATION ORDER FORM.

IMPORTANT SHIPPING NOTES: When shipping gauges and other items for restoration, please wrap the items securely! We suggest wrapping each item in bubble wrap individually and cushioning the wrapped bundles within the box with more packaging. When shipping open-face gauges, protect the gauge face by taping the gauge face-down to a piece of cardboard and wrap with bubble wrap. Note that some pointer bases may stick up beyond the edge of the face so the cardboard may need to have a small hole to accommodate it. Be sure to fill the package completely with cushioning material, especially the corners, as any movement within the box can cause damage. Do not use packing peanuts as they allow too much movement within the package. Insure your items for a replacement value you feel comfortable with. Please note that even if you insure your items, if the carrier determines the package was not packed properly they may dispute your damage claim.
