Fuel Gauge Repaired

I seem to spend a lot of time scrolling through ebay trying to find little bargains here and there. Two weeks ago a guy called Keith in the USA was selling an original second hand Smiths Fuel Gauge FG2530/70 face!

I really couldn't believe my luck as avid readers of my blog may remember that I ruined mine trying to clean it.

So I made sure I won the item and set to work replacing the old face with my new purchase and I have to say that you can't help thinking that some things happen for a reason, as my completed fuel gauge looks way better than mine ever did!
