+2S instrument set

PostPost by: jabingb » Tue Jan 28, 2020 4:29 am

Complete set for the S model, featuring the additional (rare) ambient temp and clock. Now the bad news, I can't guarantee they function but I did observe the needle move on the ambient while holding the bulb. They all seem to have been baked in the sun with faded faces, been exposed to weather and have some pitting of the bezels, most of which came off with some steel wool. I can supply closeups if desired and might be able to rig up a 12V supply and test some of them. $500 for the collection plus shipping.

JonB of this parish made a pretty good job of blackening the dials of his +2, using baby oil I think it was. Perhaps someone could post a link as to how he did it. Beyond my pay scale.

Thanks to 512BB and JonB I performed a transformation on the fuel gauge, ala baby oil. I also tested the speedo with a drill and it functions, I suspect they all may.
