You need to drive your car more. My gauges fog up periodically is I
haven't been driving the car, but when I store it (over the winter, for
example), the first few times out I get fogging.

I The car has done this since new in 1974.

If fogging gauges is just plain too much for you, you can purchase
replacement gauges from other sources like VDO and Auto Meter and others.
The TR6 gauges are 2-1/16" diameter.

I have run VDO in the race car for 4 years, and they don't fog despite
having been soaked through and through in drenching rain (both while
racing and while being towed to/from races).
