Looks really good, John. Nice attention to detail. Did you have any problems with the relative positioning of the gauge mechanicals, needle, face, and Type 3 gauge body? No problems with the additional weight (I assume) of the new needle and center disk? I've been considering a similar project for my Type 34, using an old small-diameter 6V VDO tach from a BMW and a broken T34 clock as raw materials, and have been trying to think through the potential pitfalls. The hand-turned concave face is a good solution for matching the other gauge faces--hadn't thought of doing that. I agree that a simple pin stop to hold the needle at zero when at rest would be a nice thing.
