Mercury Smart Gauge Lens Replacement

Can barely see the gauge data anymore. One lens has cracked and the other is so yellow and crazed it is unusable. I would rather not change the functioning gauge, but replace the cheap plastic lens -- anyone have any idea where to acq or replace them in North America? I scanned other forums with no luck.

Have you thought of polishing the lens with one of the kits for the plastic car headlight lens e.g. Shogun?

Could try 1500 grit wet/dry and Farecla G300 (It works very well on your GRP too)

As for the cracked lense I'm not really sure what you can do. I bought a second hand gauge when mine cracked.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?

Posts: 224 – LCD Gauge Restoration and Repair

"Can you restore or repair Mercury Smartcraft Gauges"
Depending on the gauge, yes. If the LCD on your Mercury Smartcraft Gauge is burnt or faded, I might be able to restore the LCD. Check the gallery for a before/after picture. Prices start at $100 for Mercury SC100 LCD Restoration.

Ours cracked, couldn’t find one for love nor money. The gauges are a fortune, we found a second hand one for £250!!!
