You know - that look VERY rough - the carpet doesn't even match LHS/RHS (the shame! the shame!!)

it's either something old that someone has/is restored/restoring or it's a one off built by someone with my hands-on engineering skills

With sufficient hands-on engineering skills you can fit the doors yourselves on this kit plane

You might be right!
I thought it to be an Excell meter!
I donít think the pointer will move much beyond -0,5 or +2
Especially when it is fitted with floats!
