Looks good, I think someone else made one of those about a month ago. I would make one, but I need to get my brakes together first, plus I am sure I would screw the gauges if I did it myself

yes i've seen the idea here on the board, i thought it was gonna be harder than it was so i put it off for a while, it was reletively easy tho. .

the chrome part was vinyl door guards. or chome plated vinyl strips. so it was flexible and easy to work with. the bottom where the loop meets are a lil tricky to do tho. but because the way it is tilted in the dash if you hide it towards the lower corner you can't really see it.

when i took the piece out there was a buch of corrosion falling out from the potientometer (sp?) so i cleaned it and it is actually brighter now.

but for $2.50 i think it was worth the time. which reminds me i need to get my brakes in shape too.

ps. i just notice my odo says 188888

PEH, I think he made an alarm clock for his bedside table out of an MB dash guage panel..... and spiffed it up with plastic chrome molding...The odometer is modified so that it now records REM instead of RPM... Rapid Eye Movements which indicate deep sleep.
