    Can it be restored?

    Has anyone experienced this on their gauges before? What have you done to pretty it up?
    Would the heat gun trick work? Maybe wet sanding? Or just a chemical perhaps?

    suggestions please

    I think it's all over but the sad singing and the flower bringing.

    It all most looks like it has the protected piece that peal off. Like on phones. Some of that might buff out but there looks like some good size scar on it that wont. good luck.

    I have replaced one before (not the same gauge but one for a motorcycle) the cover is nothing more than a graphic overlay with a polycarbonate window. The one I did we pulled the from sticker off (after heating it up) and than you can easily replace the window and than we glued the whole piece back on.

    My gp 1200 R was like that, I taped the decal part off wet sanded with 1000 grit and clear coated it with a rattle can, it was not perfect but 90% better then what it was.

    400 grit, 600 grit, 800-1000 grit ,wet sand each. Not going crazy but about 2 minutes each grit. Then get a good compound and a 3 inch air buff. They are cheap at harbor freight if you don't have one. Then buff away about 3-4 minutes and wipe clean. Will be brand new again. Good luck
