Hi, I am after some advice.
My clocks (speedo) are pretty messy under the glass and I just want to remove the glass, clean up the clocks, then reseal the glass back on.
Any ideas? Thanks

Yes you can by bent back the stainless ring that hold the upper and lower speedo body together with some Patience.
The main problem is to get the ring pressed without dents or scratches.

Do you have any details on how you built that Scirocco? Do you use both halves at once or one to start the fold and the other to finish? It looks like they are at 2 different angles. What is the gauge holder made of, delrin?

This is a really simple tool made of left over parts, The outer bearing races have to be need a profil grind radius to do a proper re-bent.
Every plasitic, delrin, bacelit, or wooden shaped holder did the Job.
