Here’s what the guts of those odometer wheels looks like. Two brass cogs, a tiny V spring, sitting in two halves of the wheel. One half is driven by the specially-grooved “axle” the other half is driven by the outer gear set. It’s like working on a watch...And that pic of the gears spread out on the bench is poster worthy (seriously). Very nice work!
Bela re-veneered the dash and other wood in the car. It is gorgeous... I found that unblemished vinyl dash pad on Kleinenzeigan... that was a lucky day.The dash...yessss
