Happy New Year to All Fellow Syncro Fanatics.

Just wondering if anyone has an instruent cluster lying around as

I have just installed a new stereo and soldered many wires without
removing the earth lead. Now my temperature gauge suddenly reads very
hot. As mine is an '88 model it only ha a 5 digit odemeter with no
trip meter - very anoying.

Let me know if anyone is interested in selling a cluster with a six
digit speedo and trip meter.

Thanks in advance.
