W126 - refurbishing the instrument indicator needles - illustrated

The indicator needles on the instruments on my 1983 300SD were seriously faded, the original orange having turned to yellow in several cases.

A few moments work and a paintbrush and they look like new and quite gorgeous.

I have illustrated the job on my web site - go to Cars - Technical - Chassis.

Enjoy your 'new' instruments.
