Interest in reproduction dashboard cluster circuit boards?

Recommended Posts

Hi -

 

I've been asked a few times if I make replacement dashboard cluster circuit boards. I don't but would consider doing it if there is interest. 

I don't feel they would be that expensive b/c they don't have the custom work that are required for my reproduction Tii cold start relays. Much fewer parts and the circuit board isn't big. However there are some bits that would be hard to replicate, for example the button/rod that "tests" the brake warning light. 

 

I don't have much any free time at the moment but somethings take a long runway and I like to think about it just in case.

 

I haven't had one fail but am curious if others had. As a followup, if anyone has a non-working dashboard cluster for sale for a reasonable price (not sure what that is) do reach out.

 

Thanks!

Jason

Jason- I applaud you for asking about making these.

1) My 69 cluster boards have  some wonky things going on that even a double ground wire and cleaning up the brass areas won’t fix.  The temp gauge jumps around when activating the turn signals. It moves a little when turning on the lights (I installed a complete new headlight hi/lo beam harness with relays).

 

2) I fear you will get distracted from your Baikal tii project.

Totally agree on point 2. And that must remain focus #1.

 

I won't seriously work on a new board design unless I truly could not work on the car - for example super cold in garage (<30F) or I was waiting on parts or something (but there is always need to clean).

 

It's more that I need to find an old cluster model it off of and I think that may take a while, so I may as well reach out to see what people have (I don't believe I have one in my parts bins). When one shows up I can take a deeper look at it.

 

I'd do it for the sport of doing it, even if it helps only a few people. But need to stay focused. 🙂

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
