I have a CB +8 screen installed. The first week I noticed a flaw in the bezel around the tach. Looked like it had been melted by the sun. Okay, no biggie. Cheap plastic part....etc. Then a couple of weeks later I noticed a bubble in the black plastic right behind the windscreen. Looked like it had gotten hot.

Time to look closer. I noticed that the CB screen has clear edges. All other screens, that I have looked at, have a burnished edge or a strip of some kind on the edge.

I think the edge of the CB was acting like a lens and focusing the sunlight on the plastic parts. I used a magic marker and went over the edges of the screen. So far so good. No more mysterious meltings.

FYI

Is this because of the Cee Bailey screen? Seems that I came across a photo somewhere on the Net that showed severe melting of the black plastic on the dash. No description or cause was mentioned. Something to think about since temps here in the desert can reach 110+. :shock:
