    Summit Racing has 90 degree speedo cable adapters. They are spendy, but will help your cause.

    The salvaged backer plate cleaned up nice, and a quick fog of Rustoleum made it look alright. The outside still had the Military olive paint, so I decided to leave it alone. The drum had a half...
