    I am afraid to try just anything. My old Caddy has the digital speedometer, odometer and gauges. All the 25 plus year old lights work but the panel is cloudy so the digits look a bit fuzzy. I was thinking maybe the stuff I see on informercials for dull exterior plastic on headlights, but if it makes it worse, I won't know how much I am speeding by.

    Any products or tricks or tips would be so appreciated.

    Are you sure it's the plastic itself and not the led's? That headlight polish kits may work well for you though. Test it on a spot before doing the whole thing.

    Just like @ webgrind said, I would test a spot first. Tape off anything you don't want to get the product on. I don't think you will make it worse unless you go with an aggressive product and don't work your way to a finishing product.

    Do you have any pictures of it?

    It is not the led's since the same degrading happened on the radio (with the cassette player) so I think it is ageing of the plastic. It may be a challenge to capture it, but I will try to get a picture of it. Thanks for the thoughts so far.
