Don't know about PIONEER brand but you can have your old one rebuilt at Tacoma Speedometer.

VW Oil pan drain bolts work great to plug off exhaust ports.

They should have all been made that way, but then they would not be special.

I agree.

 

That cleaned up nicely good job, Did my 520 a couple years ago.  Did you upgrade to LEDs yet?

I did on my other 521 but forgot that I hadn't so when I get some extra cash I'll put some in. On a side note the 9 led cool white for my dome light has been discontinued.https://www.superbri...rofit-car/9/67/

 

Wow looking real good. Great work man. love it. :thumbup:

Thanks Tanker.

I bought a 411 sss cluster that was pretty rough. It cleaned up better than I thought it would. Good enough to use the face from it. The speedo was seized and the rear housing had some extra brackets so instead of cutting them off I just swapped the gauge face into my cluster.

Defrost tubes were cracked too so I taped them up.

Of coarse my vent boot looked like shit so I reached into my stash to find the next worse one to use. Someone really needs to repop these.

I chose to use the second one.

As soon  as I started putting it in it crumbled in a couple spots so I taped it up. The tape wouldn't stick because I just sprayed them all with 303 aeroapace.SANY4066_zps6bfte5gl.jpg

Getting the top screws started ended up being a nightmare. I got one but trying to get them in straight without little kid hands was worse than getting the carb nuts off a smogged 210. I ended up re tapping all four holes as they were super tight.

#1544127 battery hold downs for 521

Posted by dat521gatherer on 04 February 2018 - 08:54 PM

Here's what an original looks like at least for the later 521 I'm not sure when the change was. Mine needs to be rebuilt on two sides.

Nice score. What other future plans do you have for it? I have that same blue on my right door and fender but the rest is yellow. I like me a b210 coupe.

 

I seem be be having trouble seeing the pics of the bay and interior. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
