So finally this weekend I got motivated to attack my tach and solve the problem of not enough numbers on it. After building the new engine which sees 8500~9000 the old 7000 tach was rather useless. So here is my approach to solving this issue and still retaining an oldskool/OE look.
Basically retrofitted the guts from a generic 10000 rpm tach, scanned and photo shopped a new face plate, got the fine people at Kinko's to print in on a label paper and put it all together.

and the results.......

Will post some more pics later on this evening.
The guts are from a tach I bought at Princess Auto ( a cheap automotive/farm equipment store in Ontario) .... it's one of those tach you would never think of putting in your car so there was no second thought on taking it to pieces....

As for the engine, here it is
