Fixing the dash

January 2015 - Like pretty much every else on the bike, the dash looks tatty and could do with a good clean in order to restore its long gone shine. Now it may only be covers made out of plastics, but they always end up like they are rusted somehow. So part of the shine is now back, but there are still pitted areas here and there.

Before the required TLC treatment
And after
Well since the instruments are opened, why not check for burnt bulbs ? They are rather easy to find in any car care store, but you should always check the output power (3W or 5W) so the replacement bulbs look like the others once lit and do not heat too much in their socket.

Another cheaply restored part that'll certainly make the bike look fresher.
