    I am one of those 'lucky' folks who has the speedometer which has no numbers, but a red line instead, above 85 mph. The look seems to me to be quite dated, and I'd like to redo it.

    Is there a vendor who has a replacement faceplate for the speedo which has proper numbers? Or, can I retrofit an earlier or later model instrument which gets the red out? What have those of you also in my situation done?

    Remove the speedo and mail to Palo Alto Speedomeeter, they can do the modification to the face for you....call them for pricing. It is not a DIY.

    Hey Dave,
    ditto on what Dave said.
    But why would you ever need to go higher than 85mph?

    That line is actually at 88mph, and is where the flux capacitor kicks in.
