    Gauge cluster clean up

    Has anyone ever tried polishing the cluster using the same method as they do on car headlights? Mine is a little foggy & I only use it to guess at how much fuel is in the ski.

    Is it condensation thats the only time i seen it get foggy? I dont think the headlight kit would work that well.....I tried it on my headlights and it improved it only slightly and you have to use Sandpaper which would probably ruin the guage cluster screen. Just my .02.

    I wet sand them with 1000 grit and then use a 3 inch buff with compound then glaze. All scratches and most everything comes out. Hvae done atleast 6 and no problems at all.

    you can sand however you want, do a light 3 minute sand then buff to see if any scratches left. Let me know how you make out.

    Mine was completely unreadable last summer. I used 2000grit wet sand, then polish with plexus. Came out decent.

    Got it at the yamaha dealer. Honda polish is better, but I haven't seen it around in awhile.
