      You can get them from your local dealer

      Of course it's only the speedo and not the whole cluster
      so cheap I bought three a while back. installed one and my speedo is still as bouncy and inaccurate as ever at least I know what the problem isn't... hardly narrows it down though. The new ones needed all the electronics from my old one, so it could be electronics at the back of speedo , the speedo cable (which i removed and lubed) or something else...

      The electronics behind the speedo are for the dynamic oil pressure system. I still haven't gotten around to calling VW and seeing if they can swap out the 3 I got. Two were pretty seized up. Snapped my original speedo cable and a new replacement before I realized what was going on.

      Stopped at one on my fav spots to eat lunch. I remembered I took some pictures of my white car here like 6 years ago, so I figured take some new ones(nice lake front view not in pictures)

      headed south today to meet up with Colin (dacolino) and pick up a cool set of tarantulas that he had for sale. He offered to meet me midway and I got to see his beautiful '88 wagon in person. Hope my wagons can look half that good when they grow up. We spent some time BS'ing and the drive was just great with the awesome spring weather we had. I'm realizing more and more that this fox forum is home to some real quality people, and I got to meet one more today. Was a pleasure Colin.

      'New' Dino wheel! (thanks to dacolino)



      What a difference from stock! Stiffer and real nice wide grip. Turning and handling feel great.

      It needs some leather conditioner but I sort of like the worn look as it matches the brown interior The leather otherwise is in great shape - no tears and all the threading is intact.

      (edit: wow - the photo makes the leather look worse than it actually is)

      Overhauled the diesel fuel injection pump and installed an old Blaupunkt Denver cassette radio.

      Thanks Redone. I really like the rubber, falken ziex 185s, but I think they make it look too tall. One step at a time tho!

      I've had a stumble for a couple of weeks. Put in new cap and rotor (needed anyway,) and then new plug wires (it's been awhile.) Maybe plugs next.

      After a year and a half parked in the yard it's back on the road and now freshly buffed and waxed.
