I highly recommend http://www.heiler-tachodesign.de/. They have pre-made color gauges, and can create custom ones as well.
Add me to the list of people that wished they had just googled D-werx before wiring money to Ed. I'm one of the lucky ones tho since I only ordered a Chrono gauge face and not an entire set of gauges .. but same deal, ordered and wired funds March 14th since his website wouldn't take paypal or credit cards from the u.s. (I wonder why .. thanked me for my money and disappeared under the waves never to be seen or heard from again.

So .. decided to try Heiler-Tachodesign in Germany. Ordered online .. no problem and even $30 cheaper and better quality IMHO. 10 days later ... wow .. that's YUGE!

I took a chance and just ordered a tach face from heiler. I'll let you know what happens. Seems like flyt993 is happy with heiler. I got burned by dwerx a long time ago.

Thanks to Flyt993. Heiler-Tachodesign is a reputable source. I even ordered the wrong tach face online and didn't realise it until after i completed the transaction. I sent them an email and it was corrected the same day and I was sent an email to confirm the change. The correct face was delivered to NY in two weeks. The product is top quality and I am happy. I will say that I installed the face myself and I would not recommend it because the tach needle is not easy to put on and it is very fragile. Trying to save a few buck and time sending it to Cali can turn out expensive if you F it up. It is doable, but I suggest sending it out to Palo Alto to have it installed and calibrated. Palo alto installed a new stock face on my speedo and they did a good job and the turn around was reasonable. I hear North Speed Hollywood has a longer turn around at the moment.

I found Heiler's website kind of complicated to navigate so it may take time to find what you want. Be sure what you are ordering because they have countless options on tachs alone. You can get a stock tach or any number of modifications that move the minutes (numbers) to a different orientation which would require recalibration.

The red gauge face looks really nice and glossy! The yellow one on the other hand has a dull matte look... Kinda like the colors they show on their site. Which is why I'm afraid to order from Heiler, there seems to be some inconsistency. Any thoughts on that?

ilko, i'm very happy with the one i received from heiler. the red one i received from d-werx is nicely crafted but the red isn't a deep red (slightly pinkish) and so i wanted the deeper red. heiler is reasonably priced and relatively quick delivery.

BTW .. Dwerkz is a Dutch user over on Pelican. I'd bet they are the same. http://forums.pelicanparts.com/911-9...storation.html
