66 Gauges and Bezel
« on: September 05, 2009, 10:14:53 PM »
So I just recently joined the mustang club, and extremely excited to start restoring my car Interior. Right now at night it seems like my gauges are dim , and the bezel is faded and ugly.  I have found new replacement bezels but I am not sure if that will clear up the fogginess and the brightness of gauges themselves, I am certain the new bezel will look spectacular, but I am also looking to make the appearance of the gauges look more promant any suggestions on what I should do, or a specific bezel/kit I should purchase ?

welcome to the site. glad to see you join the rest of us  :D dimness, theres lil bulbs that can be replaced. after removing the gauge panel, clamp the spedometer cable with say a vise grip to keep it from silding out (its hard getting it back through) theres, i believe two light bulbs on each gauge. can be bought at say autozone. when installing the new ones, be real careful they bust real easy. far as the bezels go, i used turtle wax chrome polish (got it at walmart)  ;D i used it throughout my interior and got all the dirt grime and rust out.  :) be careful not to let it touch the paint though itll strip the paint right off. sadly i speak from experience with the chrome polish. good luck  :P
