Found this Smiths Impulse Type Tachometer/Revcounter at the Milnerton Flea Market for R50 today so it came home with me, still deciding what to do with it but for R50 I couldn't say no

Yes it might look ugly in a bug and be difficult to mount but im sure I could build it in the grills by the speedo by making some kind of bracket so it looks like a normal tacho. It actually was fitted to Volvos and Minis in the 60-70s Era
