Finished binnacle (sort of)

By admin No comments

The binnacle job is finished. I removed the instrument cluster and took off the clear plastic. Cleaned the plastic as well as the dirt that was inside the cluster. Used some glue for car interior trim and resealed the black ring around the binnacle. Replaced all the bulbs I could with LEDs. Reinstallation was a bit aggrivating as some of the bulbs did not work and needed to be switched. The space to do this is very tight without constantly disconnecting and reconnecting the electrical connections in the back. At first the fuel gauge was off and did not read, but that was fixed due to a poor connection. Altogether it is back in the car but not secured down nor are the kneepads reassembled. I plan on doing this on the weekend as it is supposed to be warm enough to take the car out for a drive.
