Default 61 Cluster/Housing Restoration

I'm ready to redo my instrument cluster. I've review past threads and found several resources. What I want is a place for one-stop-shopping to do the instruments and refinish the housing. Any ideas? or a good place to send the housing.

I looked for the same thing and could not find it.
All of the gauge guys I called would not touch the housing.
I can understand - it'a a very different skill set.
Also, shipping that thing around is probably not the best idea.

I ended up sending my gauges to Corvettes of Maryland West.
I had a local painter blast, prep and paint the cluster.

Good results.
