[MV] 6v to 12v Conversion Question

I searched the archives but was unable to find the answer for my question.
My brother and I are converting our Dodge WC-6 to 12v from 6v. We have
everything ready to go except one thing. We will convert all the bulbs,
etc. to 12v but we want to keep the original instruments. I read a thread
about 24v to 12v conversions and several people suggested some sort of
commercial regulators that were very expensive, 300+ US dollars. We are on
a _very_ limited budget and would like to use money like that elsewhere on
the truck!! Is there any way to use series wired resistors at each gauge to
knock the voltage down?? Or any other options we can look for???

Thanks in advance!
