Default Gauges fogging up

I noticed that my fuel and temperature gauges have been fogging up the last few times I have taken my 56 out. The gauges are operational. All other gauges are ok. I am in Florida and it is hot and humid but I donít think this should be happening.

I had the same issue with my 57 when I was in Hawaii. Not uncommon for this to happen in humid climates.

A common problem. I wouldn't worry about it, the fog will go away.

Let it sit in the sun with the top down for a few hours and it will likely be gone I never have that problem in dry AZ.

On a rainy, humid Florida day my small 61 gauges were unreadable. I always worried about an electrical short but it never happened.

My 2010 Harley $18,000. has done it since new when I would wash it . Harley said it was normal and wouldn't do anything about it . For a car over 60 years old , I guess it is normal.

You can relocate to where I am and your gauges will never fog up and your chrome will never pit. Your weatherstripping and soft parts, however, will turn into crumbling toast in no time!!

The small gauges in both of my 57's fogged up regularly, especially early in the morning; nature of the beast. Don't worry about it.
