I think I may have found an outfit that will be able to convert the internals of my TR6 speedometer and tachometer to electronic internals to work with my engine swap to a GM 3400 v6. My question is has anybody had any experience with these guys? Being that I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and Redline is in Southern California I want some assurance that I will get my gauges back and that they will work. I got a quote from an outfit in Michigan and they were twice as expensive as Redline.
Thanks for your time and consideration.

I haven't worked with them but they have a good reputation. They've been around for a while.

Today was an exciting day as my retrofitted TR6 speedometer and tachometer came back from Red Line Gauges. These guys did a superb job and I recommend them. The speedometer was fitted with Autometer internals and the tachometer was fitted with VDO internals. It also looked like they replated my trim rings as the set on the speedometer when I pulled it from the car was looking kind of worn. They did all this for $550.00.
Check out the finished product!

Hello Byron. They look pretty nice. Can you tell me what they had to do internally to make them work? Two fifty something for new gauges you can just plug in sounds resonable to me> Thanks Tim

They removed the guts and made new face plates to work with the sweep of the electronic gauges.
I looked at changing out the entire set of gauges and I could not find any that looked like the original gauges so I opted for this setup. The remainder of the gauges are stock TR6 gauges.

Great solution. For another 50 bucks do you think they can put in the needle shimmy for that old-time feel? LOL
