I took another look at my console gauges today, and they definitely have a brushed finish (when the light hits the face). I suppose the angle of the photo and lighting when I took the earlier photo made it look 'flat or unbrushed'.
I need to clean my gauges up and get it all back together for going in the car and I have a couple of questions:
1) My clear plastic lens over the gauges are 'scratched' and dull; Any recommendations for polishing or replacing them?
2) I also need replacement lamps for the gauges; Recommendations for a source for these lampbulbs would be appreciated.
(I have the G-E 1445 lamps that I removed when I disassembled the console; they appear good. I assume
these are the original lamps? true? or ??) Are they available thru local parts store?
I used a polishing wheel in my drill and polishing compound and it did very well on this.
After and installed into tach housing:
