Posts tagged Vintage mustang gauge restoration

The original gauge cluster had seen better days so I took it apart with the intention of refacing the gauges. Amazingly, the gauge faces were in perfect condition and only needed new lenses. If you’re wondering what the blue domes are, they are filters for the dash lights - the old Mustangs have green backlit gauges and Ford created the unique green colour by placing blue plastic filters over the yellowish incandescent bulbs. I sourced new LED bulbs that mimic the original yellow colour of the bulbs and cleaned and reused the blue filters.
