Gage face replacement

Have any of you replaced the gage face on your instrument cluster? Our is black with white lettering and it is very difficult to read on a sunny day. Am thinking that changing it to white with black lettering would be easier to read.

Larrie, it's partly the dark tinted windows (if yours are still tinted). I like tinted windows for privacy and in most vehicles I drive with the parking lights on (at least) to light up the gauges better.

Yup, still tinted. Even with the lights on and the dimmer on high the fuel gauge is hard to read. May also look into changing out the bulbs or putting an LED strip to illuminate them from the front.
