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
Sounds like great teamwork, and a productive day! Also good to hear that some finesse and a copious amount of lube solved this. I'll have to remember this when I reinstall my glass.Quick update on the rear glass. I met up with Peter C early this morning and we pulled the rear glass, tweaked the lockstrip a bit, put lots of lubricant on the seal. It went in pretty easily... So happy to have this sorted.

I spent the rest of the afternoon with door jamb trim and other things.
Many thanks to Peter for his expertise and time today. I am very grateful, friend.
