Seems somewhat cryptic. Does this query relate to your other Post here? And I presume it relates to your '35 One Twenty Sedan?

OK - Now that's clarified that this thread refers to rebuilding gauges for a '35 120 can someone come to the party for mr35 and respond. No doubt there are people who can rebuild them but my being somewhat remote from you it is best if others answer. As to buying "new ones" eBay may be as good a place as any or the Packard parts vendors.

Minor comment: please turn off your CAPS LOCK. All caps are considered SHOUTING on web forums.

I wish I could help you with your gauges, but that's out of my area of expertise.

There are several companies that specialize in repair and restoration of gauges. I've never had to use one so I can't make a recommendation, but suggest you pick up a copy of Hemmings Motor News and browse the "services offered" section to find a source you feel comfortable with.

Or, perhaps someone else will come along here who has had direct positive experience with a rebuilder and can make a recommendation.

PS if you're considering a full gauge restoration including replating of bezels and needles, new artwork for the gauge face and the like, such work does not come inexpensively.

Classic instruments is the company for rebuilding or obtaining almost exact gauges from. They can take your old ones and rebuild with modern components and you'd never know.

Voodoo gauges also used to do 30-50's style gauges. But I don't think they are out there anymore.

There is a company called MoMa that is in the greater Los Angeles area. They made a gage for me from scratch. It was a while ago.
