Nice work
well, all are mine. check my signature line
I finally got the time to have all of the remaining clusters out and available.
The 300K+ is a hybrid out of my '79 300TD and is the correct mileage figure. The speedo shop set it up for me when I replaced the NA engine with one from an '85 300TD and installed a different (3.07) diff. You will note that the fuel gauge has a shiny center button on the pointer as was typical of the early Benz, while the other gauges in that cluster have black centers.

I need to get the 160 MPH instrument over to the local speedo shop to have it calibrated because its a but off. Not that I can ever go that fast, its just that the original speedo in that '87 300D went bad (no odometer) and it was faded pretty badly so I found one from a later model gasser with low mileage (check it out, only 73K miles showing!). I also upgraded the housing to a late 124 style with its MUCH BETTER lighting! I need to get some night time photos of the improvement
'00 E320 (wifes car), '95 E320 Wagon my favorite road car. '99 E300D wolf in sheeps body, '87 300D Sportline suspension, '79 300TD w/ 617.952 engine at 367,750 and counting!

you would not happen to have a spare lower lens? the one that has the turn signal on it along with the battery and brake light? This is for a 73 450 SL W107
Mine is in good shape but all the white has worn off so it looks kinda bad. IF you do let me know and thanks.

When I took apart my cluster I sprayed the black surround with automotive clearcoat. Just a light spray, the grain of the plastic worked t my favor and the outcome was excellent. It looks as if the piece is permatently armor-all'd, not all shiny and incorrect looking. Just an idea while your in there.
