It appears I can take the face off my tach, 86 560. Is that true? If so, has anyone done it?

Since my clock's broken and I'm having a hard time finding a replacement, at a reasonable price, I was thinking of replacing the face on a 450SL tach with mine.
I guess that raises the question of are the clocks the same? They look it from the outside. It's just the red-line that's different, or so it seems.

I occasionally see a person advertising tach clock repair on ebay for $50. I have been meaning to get mine done myself. I also want to get the numbers and needles repainted. Mine are faded. Of course I cant find him today.

I have a few clock mechs around that I repaired with new capacitors (information on how to do this should be on this or other forums). If you can't find it or can't solder, PM me but I may not be able to answer for a few days.

Strife- very kind of you. I'll search. I don't have any solder equipment and I've never done any soldering. What would you want for one of your mechs?
