Dim Gauge light

The lights in my gauges seem very dim. I can barely see them when i am driving at night. Think it is possibly old lights or a fuse?

Fuses are either good or bad, no in between. I'd guess your light bulbs are coated with dust, or just old 2 cp (candle power) ones. Pull them, blow out the hole with compressed air then put in new bulbs. Probably a world of difference!
