Here are photos from under my dash taken today. It appears I am missing an outer cover that goes behind the gages. The lights plug into this cover and the cover helps direct the light to the openings in the gages for light to go into. Clearly it seems like the speedometer was added later. The galvanized strap holding it in is not original. My fuel gage housing seems to be corroded.

Yea , most pot metal pieces 90+ years old are unless in climate controlled cover. Sometimes pieces like that back cover are thrown up in grage atic. contact the people u had gotten the car from have them look it doesn't hurt. Sometimes they say o yea.dash pieces for 28 are though, but that back should be out there its tin. Also if u ask about back ask if thay have any pieces of the old speedo all parts are hard to find or expensive. The fuel guage is reproduced but very expensive . At least for us 526 guys .those convertible guys buy 3 in case thay drop one. Jealous maybee.
