    Very cool. I’ve got a salvaged one sitting on the shelf. I’ll tear into it
    as practice for when I do my 66…

    I just restored a speedometer after watching Chris here’s videos. I did
    everything the way he talked about and it came out beautiful! However upon
    reassembling the “glass and bezel” back onto the “case” the edges of the
    bezel crimped and slipped and I ended up scratching the speedo dial :( But
    it still looks like new. Just be very careful on reassembly. I bend the
    bezel “clip” a little less aggressive and it slid on with no problem.
    (Sorry about the bad description moral is be careful!) I also changed the
    indicator lenses with a red plastic bingo chips from made by Bicycle. And
    green sense from a staples page tab.
