I love my tC, but one weakness that it’s always had is gauges that are impossible to read on overcast days. They’re great in sunshine, and great at night, but in between the orange LED lighting against the aluminum colored background sunk deep into a shroud just doesn’t cut it.
I’ve tried adding LED lighting in various formations, tried painting fluorescent orange dots at the numbers, even tried phosphorescing paint. I even bought aftermarket gauge faces with a white background that we advertised as being easier to see. Nothing helped.
This weekend, finally, I solved it. I painted fat black increments around the periphery at every major increment. It worked!!!
I may even go back in and put a white background (cut from a DVD label blank) on the periphery and pain the black lines on that, to hopefully make it even better.
I’m so thrilled at having solved the problem that I thought I’d pass it on.
