I have a 67 and recently replaced all the lights in the dash with new bulbs. Problem is, they are REALLY dim. Are their higher wattage bulbs available? Is there another way to get the gauges brighter?

I love this forum, I have gotten so much great info!

The litttle reflectors inside the dash may be really dirty or the headlight switch where you turn it might be dirty. Thats generally the problem.

I have a brand new switch, so that can't be it. Not sure about reflectors? They are bare bulbs sticking in the back of the dash housing thru the circuit board.

Might just be a bad ground to the dash. Recheck that connection.
