    Hey TW,

    I am trying to think of something to help cover the gap from the trip meter stick in the gauge cluster. I work in dusty conditions and dust built up behind the plastic cover on my last Tacoma.

    How does the old saying go? It ain't the size of the boat, it's the motion of the ocean? :D

    OP did you every solve this issue? On a whim I bought a small rubber o-ring, but the gauge cluster glass sits at an angle, and the O-ring won't sit flush with the glass, it pops perdendicular to the odometer reset stick.

    Perhaps a larger O-ring. A grommet would be better, but I don't think there is much space to squeeze a grommet through the glass.

    What about something like a small piece of foam stuffed in the hole?
