Just got finished putting my White overlays on, It was pretty easy although I had to pull the Temp gauge off a few times untill it looked strait. I painted the needles with Testors model paint like mlnielsen told me too and they look brand new. Thanx... I'll post a pic of the guages from the web site. THey are not my gauges but mine look the same. See Below:

I do have a question about the Gauge voltage regulator, Since i have it out should i replace it???? They are about 20 bucks in catologs, can i get them at a local parts store for less?
I also put a new lens on the gauges and now my benzel isn't looking too hot. Looked great before, I guess once you fix one problem everything around it seems ugly. WILL IT EVER END??????

You absolutely right. The effect is first rate. Didn't know there were overlays for the early clusters. I did my Hi-Po the hard way about 4 months back i.e. take faces of gauges, spray paint background semi gloss white, hand cut stencils & paint characters flat black, etc. etc. Well worth the effort. Have 3 gauge white face cluster under dash to compliment the dash cluster. Ain't got the guts to try the Rally-Pac however. It's an unmolested original Ford 8 grand piece.

It looks good, I did it to my 70 and I like them. Yours is the first I've seen for a 65.

I got the $15 kit for my 66 guages long ago from the same guy. I started putting them in, then got to thinking it might clash with the black/blue interior scheme so I didn't do it. You've got me re-thinking that now. I'd love to see a pic of yours mounted in the car!

I think they would match any interior scheme, I would like to see the 66 style mounted.
I think it will be a few days before I get them back in the car, I'm going to replace the bulbs and the Voltage regulater. Hopfully i can find one local. When I get it back in I'll snap a few pics. My interior is black so they should stand out. I also have a Triple Auto meter gauge pod with white faces to match. I tried to remove the glass front so i could paint the needles to match the dash gauges but they would not come off and i didn't want to break them. Maybe i'm going overboard!!!!!
