How To Restore and Detail an Original Gauge Cluster

After restoring a couple gauge clusters I had a request for a "how-to" post to show the process and products I use. The cluster I'll be restoring is from a '66 parts truck, and I'll be adding a tach and air gauge. The block off plates are missing, which is okay since they'll be replaced by the tach/air gauges.



This is the starting point. The lens will need to be replaced since it's scratched and the lettering is faded, and one of the harness wires is cut.






I took these pictures to have a reference for reassembly. This way I know that all of the wiring goes back exactly where it should without guessing.











This is one of my finished clusters.
