Replacing gauges

Does anyone have an idea of a shop in the Washington, DC Metro area capable of changing out gauge faces?

I have a set of Palomino gauges to replace, but not sure I can handle the job myself.

Proud owner of a '93 300 CE.

You may be correct in stating it's not difficult. Hey, if I can change my oil and brake pads on this car, I should be able to tackle this job.

I'll give it a shot. Thanks for the confidence boost here.

If you've got complete gauges it is as easy as can be. If you have overlays, he biggest problem you have to overcome is getting off the needles. WHen putting back the needles you have to be aware of the fact that the OEM gauges have a (white) line to calibrate the gauge...
