So, I've had three Autometer Sport-Comp II gauges installed in the Lotek pod for a little over a year and a half, and the florida sun started to get to them (black face was peeling and you could see specks of white led light through it).
So, I went ahead and picked up a set of the original Sport Comps to replace them; I figured since these have "around the dial" lighting rather than LED light that shows through it, deterioration wouldn't be as noticeable in the long run. The swap was fairly simple since they use the same sensors, but I've run into an issue after the fact.
These Sport Comp I gauges aren't sealed like the LED lit IIs are since they have a light blub physically plugged into the back. Depending on the time of day & temp I'm seeing condensation and water inside the gauges; quite annoying and I would think quite bad for them in the long run. Any suggestions on how to reduce it?
