Always a good idea to hold on to the OD cover plate. You might go OD in the future, could help a fellow European memeber out if they need it or blackit out & cover the speedo's shift pattern to go with a proper manual.

As for a tach. The printed circuits are different from standard gauges to gauges with a tach. What I did was, I bought a new replacement tach from Mike's Montes I think. The back of the tach has threaded studs. I found nuts to fit and ran a wire from the gauge to the distributor. Piece of cake. Keep up the good work!

That sure is a funny way to store your pop-up camper. Are you planning on daily driving this car? It is coming together fast. Good work!
