Yes they arent OG or even Flat4 but I think they're the dogs whilst the SO thinks that the car is going to end up looking like a boy racer..

My custom dash circa 1981 had a vdo speedo that started reading too fast so I got this new one.
Note the differences from mechanical to a digital odo.
Next I?ll get the gps dongle that replaces the cable that goes to the front wheel. Great idea.

Superseded the dropped spindles as I got these today!!
Very happy. Apparently the calipers are off a newer Audi rather than the original Beetle units and they do look substantially bigger!

Johnny if you need another matching trans ocean to make a pair let me know. Maybe we could make a trade for a different frame or something cool.
