Daniel does top notch work. He did a complete restore on my gauge cluster for my 74 Z28.

Idea for those adding Daniel's Oil Gauge. Someone should try to modify the clock lens section to eliminate the clock dial set hole....Maybe cut and rotate the temperature gauge section of a donor lens. Not sure if they have mirrored symmetry or not but maybe worth a try.

GREAT looking cars guys. Thank you so much for participating in this thread!!!
I know that there are a lot of guys that don't have their cars on the road yet, but have had the gauges restored. Project pics are also welcomed! ;)

Why aren't the needles in the above pic sitting on zero?

The FUEL, TEMP, and OIL gauges (and 78-81 tachometers) have a damping fluid within the gauge. The gauge needles will "float" when unpowered, but will register correctly when powered up. This is the standard operation of most GM gauges from 1965-1997 or so...The VOLTS and AMPS gauges are also damped, but are manufactured so that "floating" doesn't occur.

Thanks Guy! You did an amazing job with this car! Your build thread is surely the most viewed single thread to ever be posted on NastyZ28.com!

Also, I want to give your business props...

Guy powdercoated a set of gauges faces in "silver vein" for me. When I slow down enough at the shop, I'm going to build a spectacular set of gauges out of these! His work is spectacular!

Here are a few pics of S. Piel's 1980 Z28 with 79,xxx original miles! What a beauty! We used the original gauges from this car to produce the markings for the 1980-81 U14 Gauge Marks package. When we restored the gauges for this customer, we included a special redline on the tach at his request, and also installed the oil pressure gauge.

Here is mine.
Daniel's restoration kit, with oil pressure gauge.
Daniel was a great help,giving me details on how to paint the faces, and needles.
He also was completely correct that the OER gauge carrier does not position the gauges properly. I have a whole bunch of time getting the gauges to fit properly.
