Re: 1968 Gauge Cluster Cloudiness
My lens was not as bad as GlacierBlue68's but was cloudy and scratched enough that I didn't want it going back in a restored car looking that way.
My gage cluster was already apart so it was easy to work on the lens. I used three steps on mine. I started with Novus #3, then went to Novus #2, and finished with Mequiars's PlastX. It came out like new. It would have been hard for me to do with the lens installed...….getting the polish all the way to the edges of the lens and not getting any of it on the housing. I don't have a before picture, just the attached after picture.
Before I did this, I tried two reproductions. They were both OER. I bought one and it was terrible. I sent it back and got another one. The second one was just as bad. That was about five years ago though. Maybe there's better stuff out there today.
