A few years ago, in Padua, I bought a replica dashboard for a Fiat 850 Abarth OT. I had been looking for one for a long time and every year they got more expensive. So I finally made the decision and bought one. The intention was to use the gauges of a 124 Coupe; I everything I needed in stock so quite nice in terms of budget. There were two brackets on the inside of the housing so the housing could be screwed onto the inner dashboard panel.

After much hesitation, I decided to grind these brackets off and invent a new way of mounting because the depth of the odometer and rev counter is larger than that of the housing.

All wiring installed, just need to install the indicator lights (with a new piece of wiring harness to connect to the wiring harness in the car)
