Fantastic build!  I love seeing when a car turns from a beat up and tired piece of metal into a fine work of art!  Great work.

Going to order one this week.
Been busy trying to fix a speedo problem. Got a new speedo which worked for awhile then the speedo pinion started slipping.
New pinion fitted and now the cable snapped. Its a newish cable. Think the problem with the cable is because it has to bend too sharply because of the Itg filter.
Have seen some 90 degree adaptors online but they are not cheap

Ive managed to find a 90 degree speedo adaptor on ebay. Nos Smiths for a good price so that will solve the speedo cable problem

What do it cost? Would you have been better off running a clubman/longer cable to route around your filter?

$50 shipped from USA
My filter is hard back against the hole in bulkhead so the cable can't go down
It has to bend straight out of the back of the centre speedo to clear and this is where it's snapping because the radius is too tight
