Clock refurbishment/repair

This is an excellent service whereby you send your clock to have the pixels repaired. I had sent my clock for repair and received it within a few days. It was as good as new and was much cheaper than buying a brand new clock. It only costs £20 (plus £3.85 postage).

Yep - I've met this guy. He's a very clever chap, based in Bromsgrove, West Mids. He also does other interesting things for classic car owners like modifying period audio equipment to fit aux/line sockets for audio from a phone or media player. He just doesn't publicise that kind of work so much...

After finding out about this service from the foum, I posted the clock from my Rover 416 (96) on a Thursday - Got it back in perect working order on the Saturday. Great service. I'm glad I found out about this as it saved me potentially spending a lot of money trying to source a replacement clock. Highly recommended.
