Instrument Cluster - 1989 W126 6 Cyl - with LED upgrade

Fully operation instrument cluster from a 1989 W126 6 Cyl. Tach has "6 Zyl" stamped on rear indicating correct calibration for a 6 cyl. application, I believe. If it can be modded vor a V8, I'm not sure.

Instruments have been fully bench tested and as can be seen in the photos. Tested functionality includes :

* bright and functional temperature LCD
* correctly spinning odometer
* all mechanical gauges, such as speedometer, fuel, tachometer, etc
* Fully intact and complete glass housing


* Vehicle Model: 1989 W126
* Part#: 126 542 78 57
* Mileage: 275K Km
* blue LED mod, flourescent orange needle paint

This set showcases the available mods which can be done on the W126. This set has been completely disassembled and repaired.

* Every capacitor has been replaced, including clock, tach, speedo, oil pressure circuit and LCD module.
* All gauges and clock are precise and accurate as they were from the factory.
* The needles have been recoated with flourescent orange needle paint to give a bright orange during the day and vivid neon orange at night. The blue LED mod is unbelievable, its as if you are living in a glo-in-the-dark mini-put park!
* The LEDs are fully adjustable to meet your needs; from dim enough to just display the instruments, to bright enough to blind.
* The temperature display module has been disassembled and modified to fit two mini-blue LEDs. No longer do you have to squint to make out the outside temperature, it is clearly and brightly displayed in front of you.
* The brightness from all the mods is ten times what it was before, and one tenth of the power draw, incredible!

Sorry, I guess that part is important!
I'm asking $100 for the set.
