Excellent!

What is particularly clever about your reproduction is the custom CAD and 3D printed housing.

Are you taking orders?

I would be interested, although I'd need to know a price to commit fully.
I have two Minors in upstate New York. One is the 1961 Traveller my dad bought new that year in London, where I was born. It's had a hard life but is still running cheerfully at 54K miles. The second is the oldest Minor confirmed to survive in North America, a LHD high-light Tourer built in April 1949. It's a total basket case, but will be restored over the coming years.

I will sit down and calculate the price over the next few days. I would estimate roughly 75€.

I decided I needed a one off smaller clock for my car so I had a go at a 52mm version.
It turned out quite well too. This clock is based on a 40x8mm round quartz movement and using a standard bezel and glass. The 3D printed housing is again designed to match the bezel, the glass and the movement. The dial was done on my inkjet printer with photo paper.

I'll try to find some better pics. Mine was 'made' in the same way as yours but based on an original owned by Carlo P.

I posted the designs on here a while ago but found that someone had copied the designs and was freely selling them on the inetrnet. NOT COOL! The drawing work was done by Gryf Ketcherside in the US. Very generous bloke.
Rob,
Any chance you could take a few pics of the the rev counter and the other instruments.

I was wondering if either of you are still producing these dash clock replicas.. I’d really like to buy one for my MM.
