Here’s an example of some gauges that I have restored. In the ‘before’ pictures, the gauges have power, so this is what they looked like in customer boats. If your gauges look like these, then you could expect similar results..
Some gauges may not be fixable with this Standard Restoration. Rarely, the glass LCD becomes de-laminated and the liquid crystals leak out. If your gauge has dark black spots on or near the bottom of the LCD Display, this is an indicator of a faulty LCD. The standard repair will not fix this. Occasionally, the de-laminated LCD isn’t visible through the gauge front, and only becomes evident when the gauge is disassembled and the films removed from the LCD.
Whats the risk? NONE! If I cant fix it, there’s no charge. I will send your gauge(s) back on my dime, or, I will buy your broken gauge to use for spare parts inventory.
