Ron Gregory from Raleigh, N.C. (just a short hop up the road from our shop in Greer, S.C.) had this to say about the restoration of his 1969 Mustang Shelby G.T 500 convertible instrument cluster and clock Housing:  In the world of instrument restoration, it is difficult to find another craftsman with the knowledge, skill and integrity of Gary, "The Tachman."  From our very first conversation to the day that he and Vanessa (Tachwoman) personally delivered my completed gauges, Gary guided and kept me informed through the entire process.  He never over promised, but definitely over delivered the finished product.  As shown in the pictures below, Gary's attention to detail in absolutely concourse level.  The man is a fanatic.  I offer you the following proof: I had purchased a converted 69 Shelby 140 speedometer from an Bay seller.  When Gary saw the speedometer, he said no way was this unit going into any car he was associated with or restoring because of poor art work and graphics.  So, he refaced the speedometer to his level of workmanship at no added cost to me!  This is the kind of man I want to do business with.  At any price, you cannot make someone care.  Gary cares!  I am  more than glad to say that it's not just my opinion regarding Gary's work.  Every person in the shop ( Baltimore, Maryland by the way my home state as well) who saw the gauges were just blown away.  I would not hesitate to recommend Gary's to anyone.  If you want the best instrument service available, Gary the "Tachman" is the person you have to turn too!  My dad is sending his 1962 T-bird cluster for him to restore in the near future!

Arild Thu of Sumas, Wa, owns a 1968 Shelby KR 500 Convertible.  Unfortunately, his car caught fire and burned up the instrument cluster.  He considered throwing the speedo and tach away because he thought they could not be saved, but then he found the "Tachman" at H&H Auto.  Here are Mr. Thu's comments: Gary, I received the speedo and tach and can't believe the beautiful job you did.  To think I was going to throw them out believing they were unsaveable.  You truly are a master of your craft.  Thanks again, Arild.  The "Tachman" can.
