Default repair fuzzy and tiny cracked gauge glass

i have a 1993 maxum and all the gauges (the cover glass) have turned yellow-ish and al these microscopic cracks which made it very hard to read the values of it.

i was going to try and find new glass covers but i saw this video online where someone simply rubs some clear silicone sealant on the glass and they magically turn like new.



i guess the process is a bit the same like what those car window repair guys do when you got a stone chip in the window. they also insert some clear resin into the crack.

so i tried it and it actually works

but.. are there any donwsides to it that anyone knows of?

Silicone yellows with age in the sun.

There are also polishes that can be used.

That is good for a temporary fix.
But like Mike say, will turn yellows.
