Just wanted to update on the status of this:
I just got back today, the cluster housing and cracked clear lens (which by the way, there is no sure fire way of removing from the cluster housing without cracking the lens, due to being fuse-welded into place
This coming weekend, I'll try roadhouse's method and will report back on the results + pics
So as off today, here are my options:
A. Buy a new R129 instrument cluster housing, meaning $$$...but I fear that it will eventually get the
same dreaded white spots in the future, being located in a tropical country and having high humidity.
B. Buy the Silver Arrow cluster housing, meaning $$$$...but I still fear that it will also have the dreaded
white spots on the black portion of the cluster housing.
C. "Hoping and praying" roadhouse's methods will work out (and I really hope it does
D. Don't make an issue of the white spots and disregard
...but being O/C...really hard
