A couple of days ago after getting my 67 back into a driveable condition I was at my nephew's until after dark on the way home I noticed no dash lights after repeated twisting of the headlight switch knob I finally got the dash lights to come on but they were very dim to the point nothing is visible on gauges or speedo. Is it possible to clean the switch& improve the lights brightness ? Replace it & have better lighting on the dash? Any one have a possible solution? This issue was in the lights when I first drove the car home when I got it & tried the switch knob to no avail but I had forgotten about it as I've been doing other things to the car.

My 68 was doing the same thing. Would come on sometimes others not at all. Gauge lights were dim when they were on

A trip to the local Napa $35 ish later for a new headlight switch and all is good

If twisting it counter clockwise doesnt light it up any further then a new light switch is in order. I would also recommend LED bulbs in the cluster. I did that to my stock cluster gauge so its a lot brighter then before.

I've heard switching (haha) to a 69 headlight switch and certainly using LEDs make all the difference in the integrity of the switch and visibility inside. Here's my 66 dash for comparison.
