Majestic Moose, thanks again for your polarity chart, I had all but a few bulbs backwards.

Happy to help, but I heartily recommend testing first before installing the whole pod

And replacing the odo gear now is a no brainer.

Doing as many things as I can find while waiting for car to come back. I notched the back side of the front aluminum bumper for the air cleaner. I just welded a stiffener in and can check off the list.

Installed new speedo gear that I got from Roger at (928sRus). The gear change was very straight forward using the thread by Dwayne

Stopped by body shop and there is progress, even though it is slow. There were some delays due to personnel, but things seemed to be back in track.

Since I had the instrument cluster apart, I ordered SS bezel piece for the gauges from ferreus.com. The bezel needs to be bent a little to contour the cluster. It is held on by cutting slivers of high strength two side thin tape. I decided to also repaint the plastic housing face with Matt black paint and polished the inside of the plastic lens.

That really looks sharp. Do yourself a favor and replace your odometer gear while you are in there if you haven't already. The OEM ones crumble to dust. Roger and I both stock them.
I have LED light kits for the instrument cluster too, if you want.

Again - really sharp instrument pod - nice job!
