speedo up-grade


18 views and nobody replied. I think we were all thinking the wrong kind of Speedo when we saw the subject line. And none of us wanted to discuss them on this forum....!

Pretty cool it's the right size.

 Haha! As soon as I saw this post I bought one! Just waiting on delivery. I always find the originals in my cars are out And a pain. I think I will stick it where the clock is as it doesnt work properly and I am over trying to rebuild them.

 just tried it in the clock hole ...fits even better...i'm trying it this weekend at the track since you have to reset the clock every time you use the kill switch....no cutting involved

 Reminds me of the fella who put a potato in his speedo when visiting the beach, with the hope of meeting girls. Didnt work. Then a friend suggested that he try putting it in the front of the Speedo. 

Sorry for the hijack. Nice job re the instrumentation!

Boy that does fit well there and obviously the old Beau is launching pretty good to show that number. Good stuff.
