Here are the photos of the car as it is today. The car had been given some attention at the factory trim shop, resolving the undesirable "patina"!. Have given the leather a few coats of Zymol (other leather treatments are available), looks pretty good I think. The rev. counter may well be an indicator of the low milage, low enough for a spider to find its way in, live a full and happy life and pass on, now resting at the bottom, leaving its web around the needle. Any thoughts on ways to remove??

Looks amazing. Just don't ask Father Ted to help with removing the spider carcass. Worst case, remove the rev counter and replace it with a new unused one ?

I hope the images answer your previous question. I did not see the initial images showing the damage to the leather. By the time I saw it, everything had been sorted as now. Re. The tacho, I think I will either leave it as part of the cars history/ patina or seek factory help, I don’t fancy introducing electrical gremlins.

That's good to hear Ron.
The car looks great, and probably a wise decison -- anyhow seek a factory opinon re next steps.
