The rev counter - a long overdue item!

One of the iconic areas of the type 3 is the dashboard with the 3 instruments. During the restoraution I invested a lot of time to make them look as a good as new. I repaired the clock and tuned it almost to perfection, with only a bout 5 minutes discrepancy per month.
But with the new engine I need a rev counter - or tach as called in the U.S. -  to control what is going on in the back of the Volksback. The original ones, made by comp. VDO and Gossen are very rare and very expensive as well. On the ISP West website I found a nice looking reproduction, and the price was acceptable. I checked some reviews and the owners seem to be satisfied, so I ordered one:
 Here it is new in the box

The fixation is similar to the original with these tabs and also the illumination is using the original style bulbs ...- I like it!
So, Goodbuy clock, hello rev counter!
