    Default Mileage display

    Hi I'm looking for some advice I have a set of clocks for a vec c that I want to do a colour change on but the mileage display as a small part that dosent display! I have stripped it down and the ribbon that connects it to the pcb as a small hole, so I am wondering if I can just replace the ribbon and screen or will it need to be a full new speedo?
    Cheers Dan

    As far as I am aware it's a full replacement

    If its only part of the ribbon that's damaged you may get a away with carefully soldering a repair wire over the damaged area

    Ye it's just one strand mate but it feels plasticy lol.
    What about scratching the strand and sticking a wire to it or maybe one of those pens that repairs rear window heater lines??

    It maybe worth ago.

    I meant if you scratch plastic back to reveal the copper stands you could repair it.

    Not sure if it would work but gotta be worth a try anyway

    Just been reading the net and apparently it's conductive plastic lol so I will have to sticking a repair to it or trying to peel a ribbon from scrappy and glue around the conductive bits!
    I will try a repair tonight just hoping someone else on here as repaired one before and give me a good clue lol.

    Does anyone think as daft as It may sound, could I bridge the very small hole by stapling the ribbon then taping behind and using conductive paint then taping this side?
