Been thinking about this a long time, seems like the longest stretch on my ride to or from wherever I am going or coming from, I'll have the sun at that perfect angle to reflect off my dash gauges which can be blindingly bright. Or the damned hi-beam indicator which damn near blinds me.

I've been toying with some ideas and have 2 that I'm going to test out. One will be friction stickers attached directly to the plexi on the gauges. The other will be a mesh screen that can be tilted down in front of the gauges and moved out of the way when not needed. I think I can do this without it being overly large or distracting. I'll have all the supplies in a couple weeks.

If anybody has a better option, idea, suggestion or something they've made or found, I'd really appreciate some info.

The problem I had with the Vision was not the gauges, but the "chrome" plastic surrounding the gauges. Ended up painting it black, but kept the rings chrome for a nice 2-tone offset look. (the 8-ball gauge surround is all black)

I have painted bezels. I also installed a lighted running light switch which was too bright; I used midnight blue nail polish on the switch to dim that. If the other dash lighting is to bright, try some window tint.

The only indicator that's bright is the high beams, the rest are good. It's glare I have issues with, the sun primarily.

I agree the high beam and low gas lights are extremely bright at night. Maybe a piece of dark tint over the entire idiot light area. However, I'm not sure how well the window tint will hold up to the outside elements.
