Here are some pictures of the Bullitt style gauges.

I'm still working on better ways of illuminating them, but it's not my top priority right now, so it might not happen too terribly soon.

I guess this is the latest news that I have.

this winter im going to create a completely new cluster with autometer guages.. right now im in the designing stages and what i got so far is a 7 instrument cluster roughly designed (speedo, tach, water temp, oil pressure, oil temp, trans temp, and gas, im also thinking of a way to add in an air/fuel raio, everything but the speedo is either 2" or 2 1/16").. im also going to use a smoked piece of plastic to mount them so i can back light it with maybe a neon or something. ill let every one know how it is in the winter, right now i got more important things to spend my money on as far as my car. -greg

About 99% of the people who have dealt with him. Consider yourself one of the lucky 1%

I beleive that was ME. I bought one of Genos first sets for $35. After afew months of sun they began to peel. now after 6 months of being on the car they are barely readable.

I contacted Geno, and he is willing to give me half off. I figured great, a new set for $18. nope. he upped his price to $70.

I have been communicating with scott for awhile now. I totally trust him, and know he would make it totally right if there was a problem.

Yes, but Geno admits himself that his first sets were garbage, and only the first sets turned otu crappy.

The new sets are of much higher quality. Also, maybe you applied it wrong if it peeled so bad...

RPM OVERLAYS

I got mine from RPMOVERLAYS.COM nothing special but seem to be be like Geno's and I paid like $25 bux for mine. They are just an overlay, Worth it!!! Easy to install and now he has some type of new Fuaxglo thing I guess its like indiglo. They look like the bottom ones in the link below.
Except I replaced the bulbs with blue ones and its like an indiglo look now. Also he doesn't have them listed but e-mail him and he should have them.

That was posted in scotthrbacek post.

Scott I hope you don't mind, just using it as reference.

Check out the site pay $25 bux and be Happy!!!!

I got mine from gene.....

And I think they look good.I also had one of his very first sets in my Mark VIII and they are still in there after a year and still look good.They werent laminated either.The ones I got for my T-Bird are laminated and I think they will last longer then the non-laminated ones.
Just my .02 worth,
Chris

Hey, that's no problem. Go ahead and use mine as a reference. I've got no problems with that.

I'm getting closer to the new and improved illumination for the gauge faces.

I will post new pictures when I get them made and installed.

They have white face gauges and silver face gauges for all of our cars.

And they come w/ colored LED indicator lights for the needles.

They look pretty good.
Only problem with everything he sells is it is horribly over priced. Notice they are overlays for 80 bucks not even full gauge faces. LED bulbs are brighter but more concentrated and don't quite get the spread pattern of incandescants in the gauge cluster (believe me I've tried). You can get the overlays from the link a few posts up and the bulbs for $4 a pack at autozone and still come in less than mr True Blue.

Here's the latest

Bullitt style gauges

Illuminated!

http://www.geocities.com/slhrbacek/BullittGauges.html

The reason why the top of the speedometer is dark is because of all of the odometer mechanicals, they block the light. The only way to get a more evenly distributed light pattern is to add light bulbs.

Heh, guess I shoulda mentioned that.

Or you could do like Ford does and block more light on the really bright parts.

While we're on the subject of gauges

Does anybody know if it's possible to get just a set of Stang needles from Ford? I KNOW the ones I have can be repainted, but I'm working on my own set of Bullitt faces (which I'll admit were inspired by Scott's efforts, but do look quite different) and I think it'd look a bit better if I could have the same needles.
