I have exactly the same voltmeter on mine and it was in exactly the same condition but it's easy to remove, gently take apart, clean and comes up almost like new...

Just look at that hull you can really start to see how everybody that has worked on this rib has really pulled out all the stops

We found some numbers written in pen that we wanted to document, these were:

5.4 0007 or could it be 5.40 007

Thats all the pics I have today
