Thanks everyone. We're going to have to set something common to move some money around, even if just to reimburse you guys for shipping. Any thoughts on who to go with?
I'm currently waiting for the funds to hit my checking account. Then I can pull the trigger and spend it like a drunken sailor!
My preference though is to rebuild whatever I can, so yes, I'm VERY interested in rebuilding the speedo! Once upon a time, BF (Before Fire) I was going to replace the fuel and temperature gauges. I had even bought the "new" type gauges and was waiting for the winter to pull the speedo and install them. Well, that plan went up in smoke.
I guess then the next step is to disassemble the speedo and post some pictures. Thanks.
I've had time to think about all this (THAT'S dangerous!) and after looking at the Jeep, I'm leaning towards replacing much of the chrome and painting it black. There's bubbling on the headlight rings, etc. There's no way Phoenix will ever be "stock", so I guess it should be called a "Resto-mod".
I was thinking maybe white gauge faces (I have a source) with black bezels. Thoughts on this? Rebuilding the gauges would really be conducive to this.
On the tool front, I've found that Campbell Hausfeld uses a mixture of parts from China and here, and then assembles it here in Indiana, I think. so it looks like a CH compressor it is!
I'm not spending too much though until I can look at the frame and figure out what's going on with the engine. That's where the compressor comes in. But, I pull the dash, clean up and prime the screws, etc. It keeps me busy!
It's good to do SOMETHING, at least!
