    Petrol or diesel clocks? The reason I ask is that I'm selling a new set of clocks to a member who fried his old ones. If the glass off the old set is good he may be interested in selling just the glass as lets face it the rest is junk so he may as well.
    He had 160 white clocks with the brushed alloy look rings around the clocks and the gunmetal facia. Members name is Spidercoupe, PM him and see if he wants to sell some parts, you never know it may be worth it.

    BTW petrol clocks use a different glass to some diesels and the single speedo (no rev counter) is different as well.

    I do a lot of speedo conversion David and I can say from experience that there are at least 2 types of glass fronts out there. Whilst they look the same the clips are located in different places. It surprised me the first time I spotted one but by that time I had about 6 sets of clocks in bits and I couldn't remember which glass came off which speedo.

    I've only seen this type of glass a couple of times out of about 20 speedos and your right in that the vast majority are the same type, just thought I'd point that out.

    Spidercoupe has a glass but it has a crack around the trip meter resetting pin. May not be what your looking for.

    I'm not sure if I have a good glass myself as a few I get are broken anyway. They do appear on E-Bay every now and then though, maybe keep an eye out on there.
