So far in the speedometer reconditioning adventure, I've built close to 50 special tools. Each VDO speedo is enough different that new tools have to be figured out and built as the job progresses. This is a VW late Beetle [not the NEW Beetle] speedo with the tools required to do the internal reconditioning of the bugger. There are some more special tools to get the outer chrome ring, glass and inner ring off [these parts are shown laying behind the speedo unit in the photo].
Ahhh...but the formerly grimey, ugly, siezed-up speedo looks and works so GOOD when I'm done with it!
