I just replaced the face for my gauges and while I am very happy with the new face, I am still not where I want to be. I have enclosed a pic of the new setup. I would like to paint the white part of the needles black, that should be pretty straight forward. I would also like to paint the white part right underneath the lens black. This might be a bit tricky, I just glanced at it as I was taking it apart but it seemed like the white part and the lens where sorta "heat welded" for lack of the proper term, together. This might make trying to mask off the lens to do the painting difficult and I sure dont want to get any overspray on it. I would be open to suggestion for anyone thats done it or has some input. Just to be clear I am talking about the white shroud between the lens and the gauge face plate. I think black needles and the white shroud would look very nice.
