Well it took a couple of trips to a couple of different craft stores to find the material that I wanted to use for gel replacement. Ended up finding translucent binders at Walmart that will work perfectly. After some tracing, cutting and testing, I think the new gels turned out awesome! Finished cleaning the rest of the speedo, greased the gears, then reassembled. Can’t wait to eventually get it back into the car. Hoping that the fresh grease and oiling the speedo cable will eliminate the speedo whine. Once I get this speedo back into the car, I’ll sell the ’69 speedo that I rebuilt the other day.
