2) Replace them all with a new set
3) Take them apart and try cleaning them

And the winner is:

Disassembly and cleaning is a tedious job and due to excessive fading from the sun, at least one indicator (pointer) had to be repainted. In the end - they look great!

There's only one immediate problem now - can you spot it?....

The cleaned gauges make the aged steering wheel look out of place...

Looks like it has some kind of belt drive CVT for some reason???

The urba is one of the few 48 volt EVs that will go full highway speed,
The CVT was actually more efficient than the PWM systems of the time

King Midget is a 100 mpg car (at low speeds)
1wheel drive too

Nice collection
