Thanks to your tech article I have finally decided on my dash.

I have been undecided for years.

It's so hard to find the middle ground.

I have expensive taste.


I'm really cheap.



It's an ongoing battle between my bank account and my bug.:silly:

Thanks Nigel, I bet it would look great in a yellow and black bug too.

Well I finaly got to take the car out and drive it for about 2 hrs. The speedo registers about 5-7 mph high on the freeway as did the bug speedo due to the 195/50/16 tires on the front. and the gas gauge sweep it slower than the bug, ran out of fuel just before it got to 1/4 tank. At least I ran out while I was opening the gate to pull around to the back of the house and put it in the garage and had some fuel in the shed to get it inside. (note to self, fill up when gauge reads 1/2 tank).

I ran out of gas in the gas station about 20 ft. from the pump. Talk about cutting it close.

hi
ok hate to be a pain but can i gat a real acurate mesurement of the size of the back of the instruments from somebody please not across the face but the bit that go,s into the hole on your dash .

the typ3 dash openings are 105mm and 85mm so this is for 100 and 80mm gauges ive a feeling unless i go for some form of custom dash in a typ3 im stuck with stock!!!

mesurment given before 41/2 inches equates too 113mm was this across the face or the housing 3 3/4 =94mm.

i think im stuck
