of his Mustang Shelby instrument cluster with N.O.S housing:
Hello, Gary I just returned from the shop where my Mustang is being
restored. I dropped off the cluster and I am happy to report it was
a home run. The guys at the shop loved your work and were amazed with the
attention to details. Just want to thank you for the outstanding
job and helping me make the right choices. Eddie is going to the
Shelby convention in October and expects to win 1st place. If you
saw the car and Eddie's dedication to detail I know he will win! Eddie
asked me if it was ok to place a small sign next to the car stating "Restorations
by the Tachman.com. Eddie was almost talked out of sending his cluster
to me by a friend who had been ripped off by another restoration shop.
Well, now the friend wants to send his cluster to me! When it comes to
Mustang cluster restorations the staff at H&H Auto will do our best

The only thing I can say besides thank you! I have seen so many restored
Machs with clusters that never received proper attention and it always
made me want mine restored correctly. I really appreciate what you
have done for me. There are not too many folks that impress me with
their work. You, Gary, certainly have!!! Clint's cluster is
Trent Quick from Huxley, Ia called me and
ask if The Tachman could restore his 1972 Chevelle cluster in white with

Trent also wanted an oil pressure gauge in place of the amp meter.
Tachman silk screened the cluster in white, no decals or stickers, converted
the amp gauge to oil pressure and restored all the instrument housings
Here is what Trent had to say about the
cluster when he received it: Gary,
I received the cluster today and it looks great!! You are right about
decals, screen printing on the dial is the way to go. I installed
the cluster today and not only does it look great in the car, but everything
works perfectly. Below are some pictures of Trent's 72 Chevelle tachometer
and gauge cluster in white, The Tachman can!

Bruce Bishop, one of the more
knowledgeable car collectors in the country and a friend of
Carroll Shelby, had the Tachman restore his
1969 Mustang Shelby G.T 500 convertible instrument cluster and clock housing.
Bruce is a perfectionist when it comes to collecting classic cars and what
a collection he has! Well, Bruce saw a 1969 Shelby 140 speedometer
I had for sale on Ebay and called me to see if I had all the other
parts for a complete cluster and I did. This is what Bruce has to
say about the total restoration:
Wow, great job! being a main focus in
the car it is so important this was done right and you pulled it
off. I hope the rest of the car will do your work justice, they look
better than new! I thank you for your professional work. You
are the man! Bruce has honored me with comments from his web site

Terry Crossland of Clovis, New Mexico had this
to say about his 67-68 Mustang speedo and tach conversion:
Gary, the conversion and re-calibration of
my 67-8 Mustang speedo to 140 mph and the tach to 8000 rpm was absolutely
BRILLIANT . Thanks!!!
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!

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,
Tachman was featured in the July, 2008 issue of "Mustang Monthly" (page
28) concerning Mr. Thu's restoration of his 1968
GT 500 "King of the Road" rag top! The Tachman is authorized Ford/Mustang
