That’s off the wide body that sold for an obscene amount recently. There’s nothing much special about it, other than nice and clean. All you need to do is paint the needles, and swap the gauge face.
Don’t forget to calibrate your speedo when done.

I do like that though, it's a sexy look. All it is is red font. I bet the speedo label makers that do the white gauge faces might be able to do this. And it's literally just the speedo one.
Red needles are super easy.

Agree with all stated, just need someone to create the face plates

That place that sells the overlays we all often use, whitegauges.net or something I think - I thought they did custom requests. Might be worth an ask.

@bobolinski1, show these folks what you like and they will reproduce the gauge face plates. It's probably as easy as creating a Photoshop or cad/cam file and hit the print button.

Nice, I want white gauge face plates and will contact both of them to see what they will do me in a model that has the onboard computer. Not only that, but I can probably clean the funny mold off the housing before installing them. thanks Fat Sal, thanks Bobolinsii.

I chatted with Carsight (Stas) in March, he too stated, he will need the scan to produce, as the OEM varies a few degrees in radius. Thank you

As stated before, this cluster came off a custom widebody build. I read thru the auction postings, where the car sold, and reached out to the modification company, Singer Porsche, who had a hand in the customization. They referred me to North Hollywood Speedo, Ill keep you advised once I hear back, thank you all again, the search is half the fun!

I have that original speed dial which was silk screened onto aluminum, copies are just stickers which are printed or plastic overlays, you can always spot copies due to design discrepancies.
