Making it old

So a couple of the gauges that I got are way to new looking. If they were old they would be scratched up and the white part of the gauge would be faded.

I took the gauge apart to get to the face.

Believe it or not there is a simple solution to making the white look old… Tea.
Placing the white faces from the gauges into the tea and letting them soak for a while.
They soak up some of the tea and the tea stains it.

As we can see below it works very well.

All the gauges are made to fit into some sort of a control panel or box, not a side panel
from a computer case.

I had to take most of them all apart, remove the faces and remake them to fit mostly the clear dial face plates.

From here you can’t tell that the gauge is only about 3/8 of an inch thick.
