Fogged boost gauge??

ok so now that its cold out my boost gauge gets fogged up and it drives me crazy! I can only assume that its cause the air under the hood is warmer than the air in the cab and the line feeding the gauge is putting warmer air into gauge and causing the glass to fog.

Does anyone else have this problem? any solutions?

Cheap Auto Meter gauges. I heard of them doing this before. I dont think it has any thing to do with the fact that its a boost gauge tho. I think it has something to do with the seal outside of the gauge, kind of like those cheap e-bay headlights will fog up also.

I've had my Autometers for 8 years and never had 1 problem with them. It gets very cold here in the winter, below 0 sometimes.

My trans temp gauge does the same thing. I would say the cheap autometer is part of the problem.
