    Well, my gauges sit in the sun most of the time and they were nearly impossible to read and my original thought was I could try and get new Gauges. Well then I saw how expensive they are to replace. Even on EBay they run 300 plus each. Sooooo, me being a frugal guy, I started to look around and found a guy in Palatka that actually restores them! 50 bucks each. Plus return shipping 10 bucks.

    Well you tell me. I thought it was a no brainer.

    Looks good. Much better than spending the price of new ones.

    That is a great deal and that guy has a nice business. Does he polish the lens or replace the lens.

    Yes he does, apparently it a 7 step process polishing process and he also removes the lcd glass takes the polarized film off and replaces green backlight and all. It’s really a great deal.

    Really nice work. I always hated those Yammy gauges when I had a Yamaha. Call me old fashioned, but what's wrong with good old analog gauges?

    I watched a good youtube video recently on how to replace the LCD Polarizer. Man that's a lot of work all by itself! This is seriously a great find, thanks for sharing!
