Rally Pak Gauge Face - Any Ideas?

So, I had not taken a close look at this thing since being removed from my current project. I am not sure if anyone makes an overlay for this. It is a shame, since the gauges were all working well. The needles appear to be staked - is there a way to remove them without destroying them, and the individual gauge cans are held onto the face by some tiny rivets - does anyone have experience in removing and reinstalling? Note - the lighting makes the needles look orange - they actually are a nice solid red.



Lastly how do you remove the clock adjustment **** on the tach?

Thanks

I could be wrong but I think there is a gauge restoration place in California called Redline (not the Redline in Tennessee) and I was told they can reprint the face on the original parts. I believe I looked into it and was expensive. May be worth looking into and see? I am just trying to go from memory and my memory is not what it once was...

The Parts Place sells "repro" faces. The needles can be removed by carefully sliding a fork under the center and gently prying up, they are just pressed on.

I have replaced the faces on several of these gauges, it is not a big deal. Call for details?
