Q: Clearing a Foggy Lense
What do you reccommend using to clear up the plastic lens to the gauges? I took mine off and what a difference. I’m almost tempted to leave it off because it looks so much better.
A: Since they are available you could replace them… OR… I had really foggy gauges on my ’63 Grand Prix,so here’s what I did:
Get some very fine grit sandpaper – like 1500-2000 grit, the higher the better. Use some warm soapy water on the paper and sand the lenses lightly. They will look really bad, but here’s the catch. You’ll also need some plastic polish or lense polish – Mother’s makes some I believe- I got it at Auto Zone. Once you’ve sanded them lightly, use the polish. It will make them clear like new again. It worked REALLY well on my grand prix, and since I could not find replacements anywhere I was grateful!! I repeated this procedure a few times on each lens and they turned out great.
