foggy instrument gauges
 
My 79 spider stays in garage but when I take it out, the instrument gauges for fuel, oil pressure and temp get foggy.
Seams it last for a couple of hours.
Anyone got a solution for that??
As I recall, it used to happen on my 78 spider back in the 80s, but that was years ago and don't recall if I ever addressed it.

Park it in the sun for and hour or so. Cool garages in high humidity do that to 40 year old cars.

Drill a small hole in the glass? To let the condensation evaporate?

Works for airliner windows!

I'd drill it in the housing.

All these suggestions are full of holes.. as is your instrument. Leave it alone. If it really bugs you, turn the dash lights on for a few minutes. The heat from the bulb will drive out the moisture.
