Re: Sarge's rattle-can rebuild

I cleaned up the speedo and fuel gauge, they turned out mint. I wasn't expecting that in this truck. I also used n2trux idea for masking the needles with cardboard and painted them with testers fluorescent orange. My original shift indicator was gunked up so I just replaced it and painted the new pointer to match. The original could probably have been cleaned up, I'll keep it as a spare. I'd recently picked up the headlight polishing tool from HF and tried it out on the cluster lens. It came out great. And I trimmed the GEN 1 and GEN 2 plastic covers to fit their new home, secured with good old duct tape. You can see the other end of the plug laying on the bench, I've got to get that wired into the truck so I can plug all this in. That's where I'm at for now.
