Instrument Dials are a visual representation of the style and technological progression of automobiles.

We try to approach the recreation and modification of dials from a low volume quality perspective.

Remember that most originals were made in huge volumes in their day.

It is technically possible for us to recreate any dial from first principles if you would like it. The question to ask is whether it is economically viable for you to do so for a one off.

We create our artwork from scratch which is time consuming  but necessary for an accurate end result.

We not only recreate what existed before, we also create new scales and layouts based on original instruments from the relevant period.

We try to use screen printing whenever possible.

Sometimes we screenprint onto the original dial blank or a laser or forme cut blank.

Other times we screen print onto matt vinyl or pre-painted vinyl and paint the blank in the same paint. We also forme cut all of the holes.

Purists out there would say oh no no no but we defy them in many cases to tell the difference or at the least be able to remove the vinyl once it is applied without extreme methods.

The following dials are a representation of the various methods we employ.

 

 

 

aric oil temperature

aric oil temperature

We have made these dials with painted or nickel plated lettering.

aric water temperature

ARIC Water Temperature

We originally only had the water gauge and had to make a scale for the oil temperature.

alfa compressore

Alfa Romeo Compressore

Alfa Compressore. We created artwork for the pre-war Alfa logo and applied it to a gauge so that the car, a 1750, could be upgraded to run a supercharger.

delage fuel gauge dial

Delage Fuel Gauge Dial

This Dial replaced the original Nivex gauge in a Delage D8s. The original bellows system had persihed so we used a Smiths gauge & sender.We turned the dial upside down to match the others in the car and rescaled for the number of gallons in the car.

alvis speedometer

Alvis Speedometer

Alvis. This set of gauges was difficult as the dials had complex curves and the colour combination was unique.

vw beetle

VW Beetle Speedometer

VW Beetle. Another example of complex curves and colours. It helps that we have a paint shop that will match and mix paint in small quantities.

Speedwell Tachometer

We can print original dials in another colour.In this case the artwork is screen printed on computer cut vinyl.

xy falcon tacho

XY Falcon Tacho

Of the original 150 odd Phase 3 XY GT Falcons there are 10000 still on the road.

COMPLEX COLOURS

These dials were made for the T5 Elfin a project that unfortunately was a victim of the GFC.The dial colour is difficult to create requiring inks to be created by hand so there was no bleeding of light through the yellow but illumination of the graduations that were blue and red.

VDO VARIATIONS
